Mundelein executive assistant thanked for 27 years of service
At a recent board meeting, Mundelein Mayor Steve Lentz and the board of trustees recognized Cynthia Peart for her 27 years of dedicated service to the village of Mundelein.
During her tenure, Peart worked as an executive assistant to former Chief of Police Ray Rose for 18 years and former Chief of Police Eric Guenther. She then moved to the Mundelein Village Hall and was the executive assistant for former Village Administrator John Lobaito and current Village Administrator Eric Guenther. She also has assisted Mayor Lentz during his three terms.
Peart also worked with the Mundelein Fire and Police Commission and the Navy League.
Outside of her professional duties, she was an avid supporter of the Midwest Veterans Closet, a charity dedicated to raising public awareness for veterans in need.
"We are very grateful for Cyndy's service to Mundelein. Her steady behind-the-scenes leadership kept everything on track and everyone on task. She always went the extra mile, and Cyndy was willing to do whatever it took to get the job done correctly. Her meticulous attention to detail helped to keep Mundelein operating smoothly, and the village would not be as successful without her commitment," Mayor Steve Lentz said.
Some of Peart's key accomplishments include coordinating and supervising the move and setup of the new police station in 2002; the move to the new Mundelein Village Hall; coordinating Project CAPE (Creating A Positive Environment); coordinating the A-May-Zing Mundelein program, an annual event to help senior citizens with spring cleanup; and fundraising and organizing the annual Mayor's Cup STEM Challenge, to name just a few.
She was also an active participant in Stand-Up, an anti-alcohol and drug task force targeted to high school students, and organized the Lake County Chiefs Annual Golf Outing/Fundraiser, with proceeds benefiting residents in need and supporting various law enforcement efforts.
At the board meeting, Cynthia received a mayoral proclamation and accolades from Mayor Lentz and the trustees.
