Hello Everyone,

The results of the election are in:

(Vote for 3)

Votes % of Votes

Virginia J. Stephens (Independent) 312 55.61%
Kevin Rehberg (Independent) 356 63.46%
Patricia A. Schultz (Independent) 356 63.46%
Kent W. Baldwin (Independent) 191 34.05%
Bryan Moore (Independent) 231 41.18%

I’d like to thank everyone who helped make this possible, especially my wife and biggest supporter.  Now the real work begins – implementing positive changes and improvements.  I’m excited to have a full four year term to help guide long term projects and allocation of the community’s resources and tax dollars.

To those of you who voted, either for me or against me, thank you for taking the time out of your day to make your voice heard.  Turnout was way too low (only 561 total votes cast, approx 3% turnout) but I knew that going in and designed a campaign around it, hopefully making it easier for busy residents to understand exactly what I support and why I support it.

The next four years will be challenging in the best way possible.  Please continue to visit this website as I plan on keeping it current with entries on upcoming Village issues, board votes as well as my customary board meeting recaps.

Thanks again everyone!

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for taking the time to head to my Trustee website to learn more about me.

Although you can find all of these links by scrolling down on this website, I am linking them here to make it easier for you to learn more about my stances on the issues and to gather more information on the other candidates:

About Me:

Question & Answer Session:

Key Issues Facing The Village:

Article on All Candidates Objectives (including links to all candidate profiles):

Permit Process Improvements:

If I am elected, I will continue to use this site to do write-ups of our Village Board and Audit & Finance meetings which explain my thoughts and votes in greater detail.  It is my pledge to the residents to maintain this level of representative transparency.  Whether you agree or disagree with my positions, I don’t want them to be a surprise to any constituents.

Above all else, please take some time on April 9th to vote.  Turnout is projected to be less than 10%, which means your single vote could very easily determine exactly who gets that third seat on the Village Board.

Thank you for visiting my site and learning more about myself and my fellow candidates.


Newspaper Article on Candidates

Hi Everyone,

As part of their election coverage, the Daily Herald contacted the five candidates for Carpentersville Village Trustee to ask us about how we would go about the business of cutting costs.
