News

Mayor Morrissey announced what he’ll be doing once he leaves office next month.

After serving 3 terms for the city of rockford, Morrissey will be taking a position with Marathon Health.  He said that he is eager to get started at his new position, and believes it will help him continue to make a difference in his community.  The goal of Marathon Health is to reduce the costs for healthcare by providing patients with the tools to live a healthy lifestyle.  As vice-president for goverment relations, he’ll work with public bodies to develop programs to make healthier communities. 

He says “All the research that’s coming out nationally, and really even internationally indicates that approximately 60% of one’s health is determined by factors that happen outside of a hospital, outside of a clinic.  So it really begs the question, what is our community doing to help individuals and families, and employers to make sure that we are doing our best to be healthy places, healthy families?

Mayor Morrissey will take his new position with the vermont-based company next month, but will continue to live in Rockford.
