A Message from the Caucus President

The quality of life we enjoy in Lake Forest owes much to the collective great resolve of its volunteer leaders, working collaboratively with City Staff, to make this city special. Not only does this help in keeping our taxes low, it brings us together as a community. Each year, new volunteers are needed to serve in leadership positions such as Mayor, Alderman, School Board, and various other Boards and Commissions.

In its 86th year, the entirely volunteer and non-partisan Lake Forest Caucus Committee continues its commitment to identify, interview, vet, and nominate candidates for these volunteer positions. Folks who serve on the Caucus Committee are residents who are elected to a three-year term. Our neighbors, friends, and community leaders.

Volunteerism has long been the lifeblood of our community. Now, more than ever, our community needs people to step forward with no agenda, ready to serve. There are many opportunities to learn more – an Open Call meeting is scheduled for October 13, 2020 and our Annual Meeting is scheduled for November 10, 2020. You can reach out to your Ward Chair or we invite you to fill out a Volunteer Profile Sheet and tell us why you, or someone you know, would be suited to serve on City Council, School Board, or the 20 other Boards, Commissions, and Committees. If you are unable to volunteer but would like to support the Caucus, we appreciate donations of any value to support non-partisan, representative local government.

We are Volunteers Seeking Volunteers. Thank you for your continued support!

In service,
Mike Adams
President, 2020-2021 Lake Forest Caucus
