A Morrison resident for over 30 years, Chris Wolfe became the newest mayor of the Town of Morrison in April.
Wolfe was previously a trustee on the board for 10 years. He was the first to present ideas such as painting the water treatment plant and having iPads on the board to save paper. He thinks these small things can add up.
His open mindedness to new ideas is, in his opinion, one of the strengths he brings to the position of mayor. He said he is happy to have former mayor Sean Forey on the board to lean on for advice in his new role.
When spending time in Morrison, one of Wolfe’s favorite things to do is walk along the creek in the park or dine in any of the restaurants.
Evidenced by the number of his family members present at his swearing in, Wolfe considers himself a family man.
“It was nice to have all my family there,” he said.
Wolfe has previously worked with multiple members of the current board and said that he felt right at home when he sat in his first meeting as mayor.
“They made me feel comfortable and I could be myself and joke around,” he said.
One of Wolfe’s favorite things about Morrison is its location.
“You’re not in the city, but you’re not out in the country…it’s kind of the best of both worlds,” he said.
When he’s not fulfilling mayoral duties or working at his job as a sales representative, Wolfe enjoys spending time with his grandkids.
“I love being a grandparent to my grandkids…it’s one of the best things in life,” he said.
One of his hidden talents, best known to his grandchildren and neighbors, is his unique voice acting.
“I can talk like Donald Duck…it’s pretty popular with my grandkids and neighbors,” he laughed.
