Just days after being sworn in as Rockford’s 40th mayor, Tom McNamara experiences an even bigger life event.
At 9 a.m. Friday morning Mayor McNamara and his wife, Sarah, welcomed a baby boy. Malachy John Ambrose McNamara is the couple’s second child, joining 14-month-old daughter, Olympia Rose.
“Sarah and I are overjoyed to welcome little Malachy to our family. I am so happy both Sarah and Malachy are healthy,” exclaimed Mayor McNamara. “We would also like thank the staff at SwedishAmerican.”
Baby John and Sarah McNamara are both healthy and resting comfortably, according to a release from the city.
Mayor McNamara will be spending time with his family during the next few days and remains in regular contact with the Mayor’s Office.
