Thank you for placing your trust and confidence in me by re-electing me as a Streamwood village trustee. I appreciate the voters' support. I will continue to be the independent voice of our residents, while working with the village board.
Overall, we had a 16 percent turnout of local voters. I hope to encourage more residents to vote in all future elections, whether national, state, or local contests.
Our village staff has always done a terrific job in recommendations to the board to balance our annual budgets. I will continue to oppose tax increases until the board makes all unnecessary cuts to keep costs down. While I don't always agree with the other board members, my utmost concern is, and always will be, the safety and best interests of Streamwood and our residents.
I look forward to serving you for the next four years. Please feel free to contact me through the village website at www.streamwood.org. I have an open ear ready to discuss our community needs with you.
James P. Cecille
