Board member Hart represents Lake Bluff, Wildwood, unincorporated Grayslake, and portions of North Chicago, Waukegan, Libertyville, and Gurnee. She was elected to the board in 2012. In December 2018, she was elected among her peers to serve as Lake County Board Chair. Her main priorities are government transparency, efficiency, and ethics; being accessible and accountable to residents; and supporting programs for people living with mental illness.
Under Chair Hart’s leadership, Lake County is now filming all standing committee meetings to enhance transparency and increase access to local government. Chair Hart also created a new Energy and Environment Committee to bring an increased focus to sustainability, look for ways to address climate change, and reduce the County’s carbon footprint.
