Fremont Mayor Jim Rynberg Elected President of Michigan Association of Mayors

Port Huron Mayor Pauline Repp Selected as Vice President

GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan — Fremont Mayor Jim Rynberg was recently elected to serve a one-year term as president of the Michigan Association of Mayors (MAM). Rynberg was selected Friday, Sept. 21, at the organization’s annual board meeting, which took place during the Michigan Municipal League Convention in Grand Rapids.

In addition, Port Huron Mayor Pauline Repp was selected as vice president of the association.

Rynberg served previously as MAM vice president and now succeeds MAM President Wendell Dompier, Baraga Village President. The Michigan Association of Mayors (MAM) is the official nonpartisan organization of Michigan's chief elected officials. Representing 110 Michigan communities, MAM works to assist the chief elected officials of cities, townships and villages; advance the various interests and operations of communities represented by its members and all Michigan communities; promote cooperation among communities statewide; and advocate local interests at the state and federal level.

Rynberg, a native of Fremont, has been mayor since December 2004 and has served on the city council since 1985. He began his service with the city in 1979 as a member of the Fremont Planning Commission. He is Newaygo County Director for United Way of the Lakeshore; member of the board for the Michigan Association of Mayors; and current and past member of numerous other groups and organizations, including the Foster Grandparent/Senior Companion Advisory Council, President - Fremont Rotary, and Chair of the West Michigan Shoreline Regional Development Council. He has also been honored for his service to the Fremont/Yahaba City Friendship Program.

“It is an honor to work with my co-mayors and village presidents as President of MAM for this next year,” Rynberg said. “The MAM Board looks forward to not only increasing our active membership, but also is encouraged to develop creative methods for our membership to become more involved in our organization, our communities and our state.”   

Repp has been Port Huron mayor since 2009 and previously served as Port Huron’s city clerk. She has lived in Port Huron for more than 40 years. She’s a former member of the Michigan Municipal League Board of Trustees and has been involved with the League and MAM for many years.

“I’m very excited and honored to be selected as vice president of this outstanding association,” Repp said. “I look forward to working with MAM President Rynberg in the next year serving our fellow mayors and village presidents.”

Also, during its recent annual meeting, MAM selected Eastpointe Mayor Suzanne Pixley, Ferrysburg Mayor Rebecca Hopp, and Zeeland Mayor Kevin Klynstra for three-year terms to the MAM board. Klynstra and Pixley were previously serving one-year terms on the board.
