The Lake Forest Caucus is made up of all registered city voters who annually elect members to serve on the Caucus Committee as their representatives. The 43 members of the Caucus Committee are chosen equally from the city’s four wards and serve a 3-year term. The committee operates independently and without influence of outside special interest groups to identify, interview, vet and nominate candidates for election or appointment by City Council. The Caucus Committee seeks citizens willing to serve the long-term best interests of Lake Forest without personal agendas.
