Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn last week made four appointments to the East St. Louis Financial Advisory Authority.
They included Marvin Lampkin, a regional sales manager for Astellas Pharma US, who will serve as chairman of the authority’s board of directors.
Quinn also named to the board Clarence Ellis Sr., a community leader with experience in education and nonprofits and former chairman of the East St. Louis Planning Commission, and David Moore, a processor for the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Quinn reappointed Jacqueline Settles, former senior administrator with the Illinois Department of Corrections and project coordinator with the East St. Louis Housing Authority.
The authority provides financial oversight and assistance to the financially struggling city of East St. Louis. It is responsible for evaluating and approving the city’s annual operating budget and fiscal operations.
