LYNN MARTIN NAMED TO AMERITECH BOARD

 CHICAGO, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ameritech (NYSE: AIT) board of directors has elected former U.S. Secretary of Labor Lynn Martin to the board of the Chicago based communications company, effective today.
 "Throughout her extensive career in elected and appointed office, Lynn Martin has been a dynamic leader and innovative thinker in formulating policy," said William L. Weiss, Ameritech chairman and chief executive officer. "She brings valuable leadership and a unique perspective, and we are most pleased to have her as a member of our board."
 Until this week, Martin served as U.S. secretary of labor, appointed by President George Bush to the post in February 1991. Under her leadership, the Department of Labor developed a number of proposals to reflect the new American workplace, including Job Training 2000; a national youth apprenticeship system; two "Glass Ceiling" reports on workforce diversity; and policy changes to simplify and improve pension portability.
 Before serving as secretary of labor, Martin represented the 16th district of Illinois in the U.S. House of Representatives for five terms (1981-1990). While in the House, she served on the Rules Committee, the Armed Services Committee, the Budget Committee, the Committee on Public Works and Transportation, and the Committee on the District of Columbia.
 She served for a time as the ranking Republican on the Budget Committee. In 1982 her colleagues chose her to be vice chair of the House Republican Conference, a post she held for four years.
 Martin's political career began in Illinois in 1972 when she was elected to the Winnebago County board, where she served for four years. She then served in the Illinois House from 197-1979 and in the Illinois Senate from 1979-1981. Prior to launching her career in elected office, she was a teacher in Illinois.
 A native of Chicago, Martin will be serving as a fellow at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University for the spring semester. She is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate from the University of Illinois.
 Her election brings the Ameritech board to 13 members.
 Ameritech is the parent of the Bell companies serving Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin, and other domestic and international companies providing mobile communications, directory publishing, systems integration, lease financing and audiotex services. Ameritech's 1992 revenues were $11.2 billion.
