About the Trustee
Birthplace: Chicago, IL.
I've lived in Wheeling since: 1977
Married to Rose, a lifelong resident of Wheeling, Children Jim (Danielle), Mike (Kara), Katy (Rob) and Emily (Zach). Ten Grandchildren (nine boys and one girl)
Education: Holy Cross HS (now Guerin Prep) River Grove, Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Northern Illinois University
Occupation: I am now retired, but worked in Information Technology for over 40 years in various technical and management positions for A.C Nielsen, Trans Union and retiring from AT&T in 2018.
Hobbies & Interests: We like to travel domestically and internationally, putter around the yard and now some golf.
Previously held offices/appointments: I was a member of the Plan Commission for 15 years, the last 10 serving as the chairman.
The most important thing to me about being an elected official: Be part of the team to continue the great progress we have made in the village. To always consider what is in the best interest of our residents and village.
My favorite place in Wheeling is: I really like to sit on the front porch of our house and talk to all of our neighbors. Someone just said to me that they knew spring/summer was here because Jim & Rose were sitting on their porch. I am really going to like Wheeling town Center because of the entertainment and restaurants.
I belong to: St. Mary Parish, but prior to that was very active at St. Joseph the Worker, serving on the parish School Board and many functions for Familyfest and other fundraising/capital campaigns.
In the next 10 years, I see Wheeling changing in the following ways: Wheeling Town Center is going to influence more development to the west, especially the Station Area Plan.
Person who has influenced me throughout my life: My parents in that they both stressed education, sharing and giving.
