Board Member Hunter represents District 5, which includes the Villages of Fox Lake and Lake Villa. He also represents portions of Antioch, Grant and Lake Villa Townships along with most of Ingleside. 

I have been involved in our community in many aspects of elected, appointed and volunteer activities such as precinct committeeman, village trustee, high school board member, sanitary district trustee and a Firefighter/EMT for (24) years now retired.

I am looking forward to serving the community that I have resided in for 31 years. I have had the interest of my community at the forefront of the decisions that I have been asked to make as well as the genuine passion to do the right thing.
