Hello, I am Joe Martin, your 4th Ward Alderman. I have had the privilege and honor of serving the citizens of the 4th Ward for the past 16 years! I am the only alderman from the 4th Ward to have ever been reelected to a second term since Sterling went to an Alderman-City Manager form of government in 1974.
I have an active leadership role: I am currently serving as the Vice Mayor. I also served as Vice Mayor for the past 4 years. I have served as a Commissioner on the Liquor and Tobacco Commission for the last 16 years.
I am 56 years old and have been married for 29 years to Dr. Mary Martin, an audiologist at the Sterling-Rock Falls Clinic. I received my B.S. degree from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois in 1978. I have been a member of the Sterling Optimist Club since 1991. I served as President twice.
I am a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. I volunteer for the Ecumenical Minister of the Eucharist and for shut-ins at the Sterling Pavilion. Also, I am a die-hard St. Louis Cardinal Baseball fan.
If you would like to contact me, please call (815) 626-6739.
