It has been a privilege to serve as the District 6 steward of our land! I ask for YOUR vote in the upcoming election so that I can continue the work I started during my first term.  

Please contact me if you’d like to talk about our Forest Preserves. I’d love to hear from you!



Over 51% of Forest Preserve land in DuPage County is in District 6! The DuPage County Forest Preserve District was one of the first five in the United States and, in 2015, the District will celebrate its first 100 years! Owning over 12% of DuPage County, the District manages over 26,000 acres.  This land is DuPage County’s most valuable asset! Open space increases property value, reduces flooding, provides habitat for wildlife and native plants, and helps maintain individual physical and emotional health. Managing valuable resource requires a focus on the future with a balanced approach to land management, fiscal stewardship and public involvement.
