Introducing Our New Fire Commissioner: Claude Werner!

Posted June 12, 2024

We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Claude Werner as our new Fire Commissioner! With his deep roots in Peotone and an impressive 20-year tenure on the Peotone Fire Protection District Board of Trustees, Claude brings a wealth of experience and dedication to his new role.

On May 20th, Claude was sworn in to fill the vacant seat on the Manhattan FPD Board of Fire Commissioners, following the passing of Commissioner Jim Swyndro. His commitment to public safety and community welfare shines brightly as he steps into this crucial position.

Join us in extending a warm welcome and heartfelt congratulations to Claude Werner!
