City Council

Mayor New2

Mayor Gary Moore

I was born and raised in Kewanee and have called it home for more than 60 years. I graduated from Wethersfield High School and attended Black Hawk East College. I was a member of the Kewanee Police Department for 25 years; serving as a patrol officer for 3 years before getting promoted to Sergeant, and then Detective Sergeant. I also served as Chief of Police for Sheffield, Il. for eight years. Kewanee is a phenomenal city, and with my fellow councilmen, I want to help Kewanee to continue to grow. I take great pride in my hometown, and when I leave office, I want Kewanee to be better than when I started.

Komnick New2
Councilmember Mike Komnick

My family and I moved to Kewanee in 2000 with the goal of finding affordable housing. We accomplished that goal and found a great place to live. I sat on the sidelines for many years but decided I wanted to be active in Kewanee's future and was elected to the City Council in 2019. We are moving Kewanee forward and progressing into the future and I am honored to be part of it.

Born and raised in Kewanee, Steve Faber has resided in the community for 66 years, including 62 in the same neighborhood.  Steve retired from the Henry County Highway Department in 2013 after 38 years of public service.  He and his wife Peggy share five children and six grandchildren.  Steve is an active member of the community, volunteering with the Prairie Chicken Art Festival, Friends of the Animals, Hog Days, the Windmont Park lighting, the hanging of flower baskets every spring, and he brings countless smiles serving as Santa Clause (and Santa Paws, where he brings wags instead of smiles). 

Baker New2

Councilmember Tyrone Baker

Tyrone Baker, along with his wife Paula, have two adult sons. He desires to be a leader that creates an atmosphere for the people/citizens to thrive.  To be led by conviction and values, not compromise by pressure to feel politically correct. Our forefathers stood on their convictions through the Bible and he wants to channel that through education and awareness.
