After more than 16 years bringing visitors to Pontiac, Ellie Alexander has announced her retirement as the City of Pontiac’s Tourism Director. “It’s a bittersweet moment for me. I treasure all the people I’ve met and memories I’ve made in this position. While I’m looking forward to the new adventures retirement brings, apiece of my heart will always be in Pontiac.”

Ellie’s last day in the office will be Tuesday, September 7, but she assures us all she will be a frequent visitor.
