I want to thank all residents of Oak Lawn’s 3rd District who supported my candidacy. I also want to acknowledge that this win is less about me, personally, and more about the issues that really matter to Oak Lawn families.

This election was really about making Oak Lawn more open and transparent, about creating a village government that never forgets whose money it’s spending, and about a village government that should never compromise the safety of residents for the sake of political ideology.

As I said many times during this campaign, Oak Lawn is a great community. I know because I’ve lived here my entire life. My wife and I are raising our children here.

As great a place as Oak Lawn is, it has gotten off track through failed leadership and a board that blindly follows what they’re told to do.

Voters expressed their desire to change that. To get our village back on track. My agenda for the next four years will be focused on doing all I can to make that happen.

I intend to continue fighting for greater openness and transparency, more fiscal accountability and responsibility, and for a community where every resident feels safe in their neighborhood and their home.

Again, I want to thank all those who joined the campaign to make Oak Lawn better. But the real work to make our community better is ongoing. So please, stay involved. If I can be of any assistance to you, I maintain the 3rd District Constituent Service Office to serve the residents of Oak Lawn. Please call the office at (708) 422-3600 or send me an email at robertjstreit@aol.com.
