Mayoral Matters

I served as Mayor of Mount Prospect from 2005 to 2013.  I generated web pages to help communicate Village issues during campaigns.  I was first elected in 1991 as a Village Trustee. This page has various photos from before and after serving as elected to the Village of Mount Prospect for on-line visitors. 

This shows some favorites from my time as Mayor and the years since.  The page featured photo of a sunset at the concerts at the Village Memorial Bandshell. (Photo by Mike Zarnek)

No tax-payer funds were used to pay for hosting or editing these pages.  Photos were paid for from either personal funds or from campaign funds as reported to the Illinois Department of Elections.

Web host is: Tom Nelson of Byte Me Computers.  Photos were taken by local photographers and friends.
