what does it look like?

I am running for Oak Park Village Trustee to help shape Oak Park’s future for our children and grandchildren.

When Oak Park talks about our progressive values and our commitment to diversity, folks still cite the Fair Housing Ordinance and actions we took 50 years ago. Those were the common sense, progressive solutions of 50 years ago. Those actions have defined Oak Park for a generation. The actions we take today are going to define the Village of Oak Park for the next 50 years.


why Brian?

Brian and his partner, Shannon, came to Oak Park nearly a decade ago and are raising their 8- and 3-year-old children in the home Shannon’s mom grew up in, near Lindberg park in northwest Oak Park.  


Brian has fond memories growing up riding bikes around his hometown and playing in front yards with the neighborhood kids—and wants the same for his kids here in Oak Park. As a step in that direction, Brian currently serves on the Oak Park Transportation Commission where he advocates for complete streets—redesigning our streets to be safer and more accessible for our families to be able to bike, walk and access public transportation.
