In His Own Words

When asked what motivated him to become involved in municipal government, Kevin said, "What began as a law enforcement career in the 1980s developed into a love for Gurnee. I believe that a life of significance is a life of service to others and am excited to contribute to my community in this new role on the Village Board.”
