CROWN POINT — Andrew Kyres, D-3, will continue his run as the city council’s first Democratic president.

On Monday Kyres was unanimously elected for a second term by the Republican-controlled city council. When he was named president in 2012, it was a first time in the city’s history the position was held by a Democrat.

“I’m honored and grateful my colleagues deemed me worthy to serve another year as council president,” Kyres said.

Each council member brings a unique perspective to the panel including labor, education, business and banking and that helps officials to make informed decisions for the city by drawing for each individual’s area of expertise.

“It’s a diverse council that gets the job done for the city,” Kyres said.

The city council and Mayor David Uran also reappointed their representatives with expiring terms to the seven-member Historic Preservation Commission.

Uran reappointed three members, Jim Crispin, Richard Osterle and Gary Knesek. The three each will serve a four-year term.

City Council members reappointed their two representatives whose terms expired Dec. 31 to the panel as well. Historic Preservation Commission chair Paul Bremer and member Bette Roberts also will both serve four-year terms.
