Kevin, the Civic Leader

Technology Committee – Chair
- Strategic Planning Committee – Vice Chair (former Chair)
- Animal Care and Control Committee

Kevin will continue to advocate for keeping your property tax levy flat. The DuPage County Board will do this by continuing to push for greater efficiency across the county and continue to collaborate with our other local governments to eliminate duplication wherever it is found. As the former Chairman of the Strategic Planning Committee and current Chairman of the Technology Committee, Kevin believes there are still enormous opportunities to improve our service and efficiency by focusing on our People, Process, and Technology. Additionally, we must limit ourselves to that which we’ve been chartered to do. Nothing is more inefficient than doing something you weren’t obliged to do at all.
