We are supporting Bob O'Connell for River Forest trustee in our upcoming village election. Bob brings extensive business experience, impressive expertise, and a dedication to having River Forest continue to grow and development as a wonderful community for current and future residents. Some highlights of Bob's experience and expertise includes three major areas:

A demonstrable track record of fiduciary leadership on behalf of the village of River Forest. As chairperson of the village's Economic Development Commission, Bob has exhibited strong leadership, engendered a spirit of successful teamwork, and brought a high level of real estate development experience and expertise to our village. Track record counts.

A body of professional expertise and experience that is crucial to building our village's tax base through prudent commercial development. River Forest has limited commercial zones. Our citizens will benefit from Bob's 30 years of national real estate development on behalf of the McDonald's Corporation. He knows "both sides of the desk," and this experience and expertise will serve our community well in negotiations and collaborations with real estate developers, retailers, and other business entities.

Historical perspective along with a future vision. Bob has lifelong River Forest roots. He is committed to preserving and enhancing the tranquility and harmony of our village by joining our other trustees in navigating successfully the economic challenges that lie ahead.

We have lived in the River Forest and Oak Park communities for over 35 years and are inspired by Bob's candidacy and his vision for the future. Please join us in supporting Bob O'Connell for River Forest village trustee.
