Farewell reception for Mayor Kelli Slavik set for Dec. 12Plymouth residents and community members are invited to say farewell to Plymouth Mayor Kelli Slavik at a community reception 4-7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12 at the Plymouth Creek Center, 14800 34th Ave. N.

During her tenure as mayor, Slavik worked with fellow council members to advocate for several transportation projects, including a permanent third lane on Interstate 494 and procurement of state funding to build a bridge on Vicksburg Lane over the Canadian Pacific Railroad tracks. She also advocated for a new bridge on County Road 9 over I-494 and the creation of the Plymouth Veterans Memorial.

In addition to regularly testifying and advocating for issues and projects affecting Plymouth at the State Capitol, Slavik regularly represented the city to the business community and promoted Plymouth as a regional employment center. She spoke to hundreds of elementary school students annually, worked with numerous community groups and represented Plymouth on the national stage when Money Magazine named Plymouth America’s Best Place to Live in 2008.
