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.

Alternate Director - Linda Lucassen, Mayor
