Because none of the candidates for our District 7 City Council seat received the 51% majority of votes required for election, a runoff election between the two top vote getters, Leonard Firestone and Zeb Pent, is scheduled for Saturday June 5. The stakes couldn’t be higher for Arlington Heights. Please make an extra effort to vote this go round.

Want to get a better feel for these two candidates? A virtual Zoom forum between Firestone and Pent is scheduled for:

WEDNESDAY MAY 26 @ 7:00 p.m.

Sponsored by our Crestwood Association neighbors, the forum is open to any interested party.  Live presentations by the two candidates with Q&A will be moderated by Crestwood Association President Janine Lund. Advance registration is required.
