Round Lake Consortium - Village Trustee
Director to C.L.C.J.A.W.A. for Round Lake Consortium, Alternate to J.E.T.S. Board, Alternate to S.A.W.A. and Vice President for Dollars for Scholars.
I have resided with my family in Round Lake Heights for 38 years. I became involved in our local government 17 years ago because I believed I could help make a difference. My life and our village has seen many changes during my 4 ½ terms in office. Personally, the marriage of my children and the birth of my seven grandchildren. Governmentally, a village that went from operating in the red with minimal police coverage to a village that operates in the black and full time police coverage. The department has 5 full time officers. With new development, new parks, and the addition of the middle school. Round Lake Heights has grown two fold.
When I was elected to my first term the party slogan was "Party for the People". I believe I have upheld that motto and will continue to do so, both as Trustee as well as in my personal life.

It is a true privilege and honor to serve the residents of Round Lake Beach as Mayor. I’m a retired Chicago Police Officer with a Bachelor’s in Applied Science in Law Enforcement and have vast experience in the Public Service field and Parliamentary Procedures.
My wife Julie and I feel privileged to raise our children Maegan and Nathan in such a welcoming community.
Former President of PLEA (Professional Law Enforcement Association), Director & Vice President of the Round Lake Beach Cultural & Civic Center Foundation and Commissioner of the Round Lake Area Park District.
I understand the value and importance of the community and will commit to being loyal and endorse our community’s mission without reservation. As Mayor I hope to contribute my 25+ years in community service involvement and do what I can to help our village reach its full potential.
I, along with this trusted Board’s approval, hope to nurture all of those seeds Mayor Hill planted, grow our community outreach, foster in new and diverse economic development, encourage stronger relationships within our community members, enhance safety and security for all of our residents, and solidify a true partnership between the People and their Government.
