City Councilman Enters County Board Race

Steve Mandel has begun petitioning.

Recently the Lake County Board has created a new district that includes most of Highland Park, all of Highwood and a tiny part of Deerfield. I am currently passing petitions to run for this newly formed district and am excited about extending my political career at the County.

As many of you might know, I originally started my public service working on County issues and have continued that work through today serving as an Executive Board Member, Chair of the Finance Committee and Chair of the Legislative Committee for the . SWALCO is an agency that represents about 41 communities in Lake County. Outside of SWALCO, I have been involved in County open space preservation, discussions on health services, housing, watershed conservation, and land use.

and currently represent areas covered by the newly drawn district. I would be proud to continue the good efforts of both these fine ladies while bringing a renewed enthusiasm in representation of this new district and all of Lake County.

Please give me feedback on this new opportunity as I collect my petitions and prepare to file within this next month. Thank you for all your support... past and present!
