The Non-Partisan Committee on Local Government in Park Forest

The mission of the Committee for Non-Partisan Local Government in Park Forest is to introduce Candidates for Village Offices to the community at no cost to the candidates or the citizens, while encouraging candidates and community to observe the integrity of a truly Non-Partisan Election.

Vision, Issues, & Values

The Nonpartisan Committee was established in 1955 as a not-for-profit organization, which supports and maintains non-partisan local government. Opportunities are provided for Park Forest Village candidates to meet the public at several forums held during an election year. Committee membership is open to any Park Forest resident who pays the dues established by the Board of Directors.

If you are interested in helping to continue the Park Forest tradition of truly non-partisan elections, please send a message to: [email protected]. You may also wish to visit us on Facebook at: facebook.com/parkforestnpc.
