President’s Letter

The quality of life we enjoy in Lake Forest owes much to the collective great resolve of its volunteer leaders, over many years, to make this city a special place to live. Lake Forest is governed in large part by its volunteer citizens – something that helps keep our taxes lower than most of our neighboring communities.  And each year, there must be new volunteers to step forward and serve in leadership positions such as mayor, alderman, school board, and various other boards and commissions.

In its 84th year, the Lake Forest Caucus Committee, also entirely volunteer and non-partisan, continues to identify, interview, vet, and nominate candidates for these volunteer positions. The goal is simple – find the best person for the position, without involvement of agendas or political parties.

Volunteerism is the lifeblood of our community. And its continued success will be propped up by the strength and quality of our volunteers. To that end, I 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 our 20 other boards, commissions, and committees.  Thank you for your participation and support.

 

Sincerely,
Joshua Jackson
President, 2018-2019 Caucus Committee
