The Honorable Christopher Canning, former mayor of the Village of Wilmette, was appointed to the PACE Board of Directors on June 19, 2013. 

Pace is the suburban bus service provider of the Regional Transportation Authority. Mr. Canning will represent Evanston, Glencoe, Glenview, Golf, Kenilworth, Lincolnwood, Morton Grove, Northfield, Skokie, Wilmette and Winnetka on the Pace Board. 

Mr. Canning was nominated by Cook County Commissioners Larry Suffredin (13th District) and Gregg Goslin (14th District). 

Mr. Canning will be filling the vacancy of the Honorable Vernon Squires, also, a former President of the Village of Wilmette.  Mr. Squires was a founding member of the PACE Board of Directors since 1984, including serving as Vice-Chairman of the Board.  His leadership is noted for the expansion of the PACE system throughout suburban Cook County. 

Mr. Canning was twice elected to the office of Village President of Wilmette and served from 2005 to 2013.  He is a past recipient of an Urban Land Institute Technical Assistance Panel resulting in the publication of the study, “Revitalizing the Classical American Town-Wilmette, Illinois” 

In addition,  to successfully applying for and managing numerous grants benefiting Wilmette he successfully passed the Municipal Electricity Aggregation Referendum by a margin of 3 to 1. 

Mr. Canning is a past President of the Northwest Municipal Conference and currently sits on the Evanston Hospital Community Advisory Committee and has been a member of the Citizen Advisory Board of the Regional Transportation Authority since 2009. His service to Wilmette includes procuring a $100,000 RTA Community Planning Grant for the Wilmette Village Center Master Plan, which was adopted by the Village in 2011.

During his tenure Mr. Squires served on the Board of Directors as its Vice Chairman. Along with being a former Village President for the Village of Wilmette, Mr. Squires has served as a Village Trustee and is director of the Wilmette Historical Society and The Mather Foundation in Evanston.

Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin stated, “Chris Canning will be a worthy successor to Vernon Squires and will continue his legacy of building a strong suburban bus service.”

“I support Mayor Canning and believe he will represent the transportation needs of the northern suburbs and the region as a whole,” said Cook County Commissioner Gregg Goslin.
