We are so pleased to add our voices to those supporting Patty Henek for River Forest Village Trustee. We are confident that Patty would deliver the same stellar results in this role that she has in the many other roles she has gladly taken on in our village. 

We first met Patty through the 700 block of Bonnie Brae Lemon-Aid Stand, an incredible program that has raised thousands of dollars for a variety of local organizations over the last 15 years. She has been in a leadership position in this venture since it began in 2002. 

We have worked closely with her since 2010 when she took over from us as coordinator of the Oak Park-River Forest Holiday Food and Gift Basket. Every year she leads a community effort to assure more than 2,000 of our neighbors in need receive holiday food gift cards and presents. 

Our personal and professional relationship with Patty has convinced us that she is an ideal candidate for village trustee. She has the intellect to analyze complex issues, a sense of fairness that assures she listens to all sides, a willingness to invest as much work as it takes and the courage to stand behind her decisions. 

We are pleased to endorse Patty Henek for River Forest Village Trustee.
