MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU : During a business visit on Friday, April 27 to Nissan's Midwest Regional Sales Headquarters, Mayor Irvin was welcomed to the prodigious facility on Aurora's far east side by its superstar leadership team and a Star Wars wall display. Nissan has an ongoing collaboration with Lucasfilm for the Star Wars franchise. Regional Vice President Craig Keeys (second from right) and his team oversee Nissan's Midwest Regional Headquarters in Aurora, which covers 10 states.
