Our Political History
In late 2016, in a quiet neighborhood in Bolingbrook, neighbors, business owners, and concerned citizens joined together to discuss the upcoming municipal election in Bolingbrook and the need for a change in local government. Citing citizens’ complaints that Bolingbrook’s leadership had grown out of touch with the diversity of the community, who its residents are and what is important to them, the group acknowledged that for over 30 years the same party has been in control and change is desperately needed.
Concerns expressed amongst the group ranged from improved fiscal responsibility and transparency to taxpayers, to improving services to residents including repair and installation of sidewalks and other infrastructure basics that are missing in some "forgotten parts" of the village. It became clear to all who were in attendance that it was time for change and "Bolingbrook United" was born.
