A Message from the Mayor…

I am honored and humbled to serve the residents of East Alton. I believe East Alton is a great place to live and raise a family, as I have raised mine over the last 32 years. Growing up and raising my family here gives me a sense of pride and belief the village can thrive even in these strange times.

I want to thank the many village employees who worked during the pandemic to keep services going, and who continue to work through all of the pandemic uncertainty. Thank you to the Public Works Department, staff at the Village Hall, and the Fire and Police Department personnel.

Many of you know that I am very much community-orientated, and my challenge to you is to get involved in community activities. A few opportunities that happen each year that are geared toward our youth are “Back to School Giveaway” Backed by the Badge which usually happens in August, the Soapbox Race for Fun every September, and new this year was the Night of Christmas featuring Santa’s Cottage. If you would like to volunteer for any event or just receive further information, please visit our Facebook page or pick up flyers at Village Hall or the Keasler Complex.

As your mayor, I will do my best to continue to make East Alton a thriving village. If you have concerns, feel free to stop by Village Hall or give me a call or send me an email, listed below. I would love to talk about your accomplishments or address your concerns.
