Message from the Village President
Greetings reetings to all of the residents and businesses in Matteson. Summer is rapidly approaching and we are ready to enjoy the much anticipated warmer weather. I begin by extending congratulations to Trustee Sam Brown and Trustee Paula Farr, as they were both re-elected in the April election. It has been a privilege to work with them both over the years and I look forward to continuing efforts alongside them to ensure future success in Matteson. Additionally, I would like to welcome our newest Trustee, Andrè C. Satchell, who was recently sworn-in and hopes to contribute with our vision in moving Matteson forward. I would also like to acknowledge Kevin Little for his contributions to the community, and his hard work and commitment to the Village of Matteson during his time as Trustee.
2015 has been a busy year for us thus far and elected officials and staff have been very diligent in their efforts, particularly in the area of economic development. We are proud of the addition of Giordano's to the community, which completes the second of the two newer strip malls on the corner of Lincoln Highway and Cicero. We also celebrate the former Lincoln Mall businesses that have decided to remain within the community as well as the local and national businesses that continue to choose Matteson. Elected officials and the Economic Development Team continue to work persistently on numerous economic development projects. We will continue to keep residents informed as we have new information to share.
Lastly, don't miss out on this year's Memorial Day Parade on May 25th, a community tradition that has been celebrated for decades. Please join the Village community as we come together to honor our fallen heroes, veterans and those who continue to serve in the armed forces. At this year's parade we also celebrate the 160th anniversary of the Village of Matteson.
I wish you and your family an enjoyable, peaceful and safe summer and on behalf of the Ashmore family and me, we wish you Godspeed until we meet again.
Andrè B. Ashmore, Village President
Village of Matteson
