8th PDAC announces new executive board


The 8th Po­lice Dis­trict Ad­vis­ory Coun­cil an­nounced its new ex­ec­ut­ive board dur­ing the group’s monthly meet­ing on Jan. 4.

Harry Son­ntag will be the new chair­man, with Theresa Grumbrecht the new vice chair­wo­man and Betsy Zach the new treas­urer. All board terms are two years.

Son­ntag and Zach are fa­mil­i­ar names on the board. Son­ntag was elec­ted vice chair­man two years ago be­fore as­sum­ing the role of in­ter­im chair­man when Rose­mary Con­tino, the former chair­wo­man, resigned from the board. Sim­il­arly, Zach pre­vi­ously served as in­ter­im treas­urer.

All three of­ficers were the only nom­in­ees for their po­s­i­tions and were af­firmed by a hand vote of PDAC mem­bers.

There were no nom­in­ees for the of­fices of re­cord­ing and cor­res­pond­ing sec­ret­ary, ser­geant at arms and two trust­ees. Those of­fices will be filled by ap­point­ment by the newly elec­ted board mem­bers, Son­ntag said.

Son­ntag presen­ted framed pho­tos and plaques to out­go­ing board mem­bers, thank­ing them for their ser­vice, in­clud­ing re­cord­ing sec­ret­ary Mar­garet Phil­ippi, trust­ee Jack Tol­chin, trust­ee Eric Clauson, ser­geant at arms Bob Ber­ry­man and vice chair­wo­man Elsie Stevens. ••
