Hi, I am John Stauter, your Alderman-at-Large, and this is my first term on the City Council.  Prior to being elected to the City Council, I served on the Planning Commission and was Chairman at the time I was elected to the Council.

I have lived in Sterling most of my life, with my wife, Carol.  We have two sons, Jeff and Jason, and four grandchildren.

I received my BS degree from Rockford University (College) majoring in accounting.

I retired as manager of the Wire Division of Northwestern Steel and Wire in 1999.  I am currently employed with Winebaugh & Associates of Rochelle, a CPA firm doing government audits, taxes, and quick books consulting.

I am currently active with Kiwanis as Vice President (have served as  President twice), active at East Jordan United Methodist Church, currently a delegate to conference and past treasurer.  Over the years, I have been in scouting, baseball, Habitat for Humanity, PTO president, and volunteering in the community.
