Ludington’s Spartan connection

LUDINGTON — Mayor Ryan Cox presided over his first city council meeting tonight. The meeting was fairly short, 21 minutes to be exact. An interesting trivial observation by this writer was the election of Nick Tykoski as mayor pro-tem. Not only does this mean that the top two elected positions in the City of Ludington are held by the two youngest members of the council but they are also held by Mason County Central High School graduates. Cox graduated in 2001 and Tykoski in 2000.

More interesting notes on Cox and Tykoski: they were both raised in family-owned businesses and both continue to be involved in those businesses. While Cox’s “day job” is being a teacher at O.J. DeYonge Middle School, he also spends afternoons and Saturdays helping at Cox’s Sales and Service in Scottville. Tykoski owns Safety Decals, Inc., he is also the third generation to work at Tye’s Signs.

They also are both committed to serving the community in multiple capacities. Until this past year Tykoski was a member of the Ludington Fire Department. He resigned due to his busy work schedule. Cox is a member of the Ludington Police Department volunteer reserve unit.

Other business Monday night, the council approved appointments to the city’s committees and boards.

Go Spartans!
