Dedicated Leadership Through Humility, Thoughtfulness & Respect
Thank You Mayor Willcox for Your Decades of Service to the Community
Mayor Ken Willcox has committed over 50 years of his life to public service and nearly three decades specifically to local governments. Over the last 20 years, he has served the City of Wayzata through a variety of roles, with the last 12 years as Mayor.
Leading with humility, thoughtfulness and respect, Mayor Ken Willcox served our community with an emphasis on relationships, consistency, and clear communication. Mayor Willcox’s legacy will be forever engrained in the organization and he has earned the respect of thousands throughout the community and points beyond.
The City of Wayzata benefitted greatly from his leadership of the Lake Effect/Panoway Initiative to transform the City’s “front porch” of Lake Minnetonka, his commitment to preserving the small-town character of Wayzata, and his dedication to investing in people and building relationships throughout the community and region.
We will be virtually celebrating Mayor Willcox's legacy at his last City Council meeting on December 15. We look forward to celebrating in person when it is safe to do so.
Thank you - for your service Mayor Willcox! We wish you congratulations with virtual hugs and handshakes and our best wishes in the next phase of your life!
