Dennis Allen was acknowledged this week for his four years as chairman of the St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners.
During their meeting Tuesday, county commission members recognized Allen with a plaque and an abundance of kind words.
Board vice-chair Dan Czajkowski – in the absence of board chair Kathy Pangle – said Allen was a good and reliable leader as county board chairman from 2018 through 2021. Czajkowski said Allen treated people with respect, he always gave people a time to air their grievances and proved to be a natural leader.
Allen, a Centreville resident, is in his sixth year as a county commissioner but asked to not be reappointed as chairman for 2022. He represents Lockport, Nottawa, Florence and Sherman townships.
