Message from the Village President

Dear Neighbors: Let me begin by thanking the residents for their vote of confidence to lead our community. I am truly humbled and honored to serve.

During the election, I witnessed real passion from candidates and residents with a common goal to make our community the best in the south suburbs. I heard diverse ideas and a collective desire to work together to shape our future. I want all of us to embrace fresh thinking and an appreciation for new approaches so we can make a tangible difference in what we do and how we evolve as a village.

I take the responsibilities of Village President seriously and I will work with village administrators and staff, elected officials, business and community leaders to do the job I was elected to do. I will work tirelessly to implement plans and a shared vision for moving Matteson forward. As your advocate, I encourage each of you to actively participate in Matteson's welfare by volunteering in village affairs and joining committees.

Our village government will continue to operate with a high-level of transparency, integrity and respect for all voices in our community. Together, we can achieve so much. Apart, we will waste precious resources and achieve little.

My hope is to continue the legacy of my predecessors to make current and future generations proud to call the Village of Matteson their home.

Best Wishes,

Sheila Chalmers-Currin, Village President
Village of Matteson
