New Member Joins Mqt. City Commission

When the Marquette City Commission meets next Monday, it’ll look a little bit different in light of Tuesday’s election results.

Mayor John Kivela’s re-election bid proved successful.

And city businessman David Saint-Onge is victorious on his first try.

He takes the seat vacated by Don Potvin, who chose to not seek re-election.

He says he looks forward to joining his new colleagues and helping the city grow as a municipal leader in the U.P.

Saint-Onge serves as president of both the Marquette Rangers hockey team and a business consulting firm called Black Ink Assets.

In the past, he’s been on the city’s Board of Zoning Appeals and in Parks & Recreation.

He believes his experience can help Marquette with financial and environmental issues.

Saint-Onge will go through orientation later this week so he can be up to speed on several city issues in time for Monday’s meeting.
