John C. AckermanThank you for visiting my website. After a decade of serving the citizens of Central Illinois as a Tazewell County Board Member and Washington City Council Member, along with service to numerous local, regional and statewide Political Campaigns, I now have the opportunity to turn my passion into a career with my private business; Ackerman Consulting Services.

While I have and continue to work on smaller projects with additional clients including consulting political campaigns, I have one permanent client; the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago. For them I serve as Director of Media Relations for the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago.

For the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago, I have assisted in Op-Ed's and news releases have been seen in some of the nation's leading newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal, Philadelphia Inquirer, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun Times, Des Moines Register, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Indianapolis Star, Minneapolis Star Tribune and the National Catholic Register amongst others.

Within the six states that make up the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago (all of Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota as well as the vast majority of Missouri and northwestern Indiana), I have facilitated local news coverage in each and every community with a parish and have served as an liason between the Metropolitan, Bishop, local Parish Priest and news media.

My family and I remain as residents of Washington and active members of our Central Illinois community. I work from my home office as well as an office in downtown Chicago, with frequent traveling throughout the six states that make up the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago.

Thank you once again for taking this time to visit my website and feel free to contact me anytime.
