For six years, Kathryn McCullough has served on the Lake Forest City Council. But she's never been mayor. McCullough won't say so, but many believe it's because she's black. Last week, McCullough was passed over for the post when the council handed the mayor's gavel to former mayor and Councilman Richard T. Dixon. The council majority backing Dixon also chose Councilwoman Helen Wilson to serve as mayor pro tem, a job that often leads to a future nomination for mayor.
