How can Lake County serve you better?

I am honored to be the County Board representative for District 13, which includes the Village of Lake Bluff and areas within Great Lakes, North Chicago, Waukegan, Libertyville, Gurnee, Wildwood, and unincorporated Grayslake.

I know how important it is to keep in touch. As your representative, I seek to communicate directly with you to keep you informed of upcoming events and issues, and hear your position about the things that affect you. If you have meetings in your neighborhood that you would like me to attend, or if there are concerns in your community that I should know about, please don't hesitate to contact me. You can reach me at 224-212-0331 or smhart@lakecountyil.gov.

Together we can make sure that Lake County remains a wonderful place to call home.

Sincerely,

An update after two years on the Board

It has been just over two years since I took office as your Lake County Board representative and Forest Preserve Commissioner and it has been a rewarding experience. In December I held 12 open-office hours and public information sessions across my district, and I appreciated hearing the questions, concerns, and feedback about living and working here in Lake County. If you were unable to attend and would like to speak with me, please let me know.   Read more about An update after two years on the Board

Free, confidential mental health services for our veterans

Lake-McHenry Veterans and Family Services

Paul Baffico, Lake Bluff resident and Vietnam veteran, saw a gap in the provision of mental health services for our veterans and, in partnership with the Lake County Health Department, created Lake-McHenry Veterans and Family Services (LMVFS).  This partnership, partially funded via a federal grant, is truly innovative and is the first of its kind in the United States.   Read more about Free, confidential mental health services for our veterans

Honoring our veterans

With Veteran's Day upon us, I hope you'll join me in honoring those who serve our country by attending one of the many Veteran's Day ceremonies that are being held throughout Lake County. 

Veterans face several challenges as they return home and begin the process of reintegrating back into their families and communities. There are over 38,000 veterans living in Lake County, and this number will grow substantially by 2020.  Read more about Honoring our veterans
