I am very proud to represent Elmwood Park and River Grove on the Cook County Board. Over the years, I have seen and supported many positive changes in our commercial and business areas. Businesses provide jobs, enhance our quality of life and bolster the strength of our community groups, churches, schools and sports organizations.
In order to keep our areas vibrant, it is vitally important that we attract new businesses. It is equally important that we support our existing local businesses, especially as brick-and-mortar operations are continually challenged by on line options.
Please continue to patronize our local businesses, and remember that many of them are owned and operated by our neighbors. Consider it an investment in your future – and in the future of our communities!
Peter N. Silvestri,
Cook County Commissioner, 9th District
