Remembering our Friend, Christine Burns, Spring Lake Village Manager
Longtime League Leader Chris Burns passed away September 27. She was the sitting President of the Michigan Municipal Executives, served as Chair of the MML Workers Compensation Fund, and as a member of the Board of Trustees. She was an inaugural advisor to the League’s 16/50 project and a steadfast supporter of that initiative. Indeed, her professional accomplishments are numerous. What we want to honor is the personal connection she had with our League family. Chris was a vibrant soul. She raised the energy in every room she entered, lifting the spirits of those around her. She was a supportive friend to all of us on staff, having developed meaningful friendships over many, many years. We mourn her loss but will carry forward her legacy of mentorship, leadership, and kindness.
