LITH president: Mulcahy

Voters in Lake in the Hills will be going in a new direction when they visit the polls to elect their next village president.

Two candidates with a wealth of experience who also happen to be friends, Paul Mulcahy and Bill Dustin, are running for the post. Both candidates praised the work of departing Village President Ed Plaza, who did not seek a fourth term.

Mulcahy, a 61-year-old retired U.S. Postal Service worker, has been a village trustee for 10 of the past 15 years and chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission for five years.

Dustin, 66, runs an advertising specialty and retail Internet business, is a broker for Baird & Warner Real Estate, and owns two greeting card businesses.

He has been a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission since 2011. He ran for trustee in 2011, but did not win a seat.

Mulcahy, the founder of the Summer Sunset Festival, said he hopes to continue to reduce the village’s tax levy, which has been reduced the past two years.

Dustin’s goal is to increase economic growth by attracting businesses to the vacant properties in the village. He wants to encourage residents to get involved in the community, and he would like to add more sidewalks and street lamps to the village.

We endorse Mulcahy.
