Current Village of Barrington Hills Trustee Brian Cecola

Races for mayor and village president have been some of the most hotly contested showdowns in the Northwest suburbs this election cycle.

Here’s a recap of a handful of the headline-grabbing contests.

Barrington Hills

Two candidates are vying to become Barrington Hills’ next village president.

Brian Cecola, a business owner and six-year village trustee, is taking on Dennis Kelly, the Barrington Hills Park District board president and a local insurance broker.

Incumbent Martin McLaughlin won the state House 52nd District race in November and isn’t seeking reelection.

Cecola touted his hands-on experience in village government. Kelly touted his experience serving on the park board for eight years, saying he would bring a new set of eyes to village hall.

Cecola said the village has lowered its tax levy and cut spending during his tenure on the board and as chairman of the public safety and roads and bridges committees, while at the same time ramping up its road program.

Kelly, the former chairman of the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce board, said he would emphasize transparency (WHAT TRANSPARENCY?) and participation by residents if elected.

The Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways has awarded Barrington Hills a $12,514 grant for a drainage study along Donlea Road between Butternut and County Line roads.

The funding will be used to conduct a study in partnership between the village and department of transportation to address the flooding challenges that previously have required the closure of Donlea Road, officials said.

The grant was one of four approved Thursday by the Cook County Board of Commissioners.

Brian Cecola

Two experienced, knowledgeable candidates are vying for the opportunity to serve Barrington Hills as village president in the April 6 election, and voters face a difficult time choosing between them.

Brian Cecola, a self-employed business owner, is a village trustee with a long record of service in the area, including leadership of the Barrington Lions Club and serving as a firefighter and board member for the Barrington Fire Department, On the Barrington Hills village board, he heads the Bridges and Public Safety Department, which accounts for a large portion of the town’s budget.

He emphasizes goals of fiscal restraint — citing the village’s record of six-straight years of levy reduction — and sees himself as a relationship builder who can work constructively with other leaders.

Our preference leans toward Cecola, whose direct experience with the village board gives him more direct insight into the workings of village government and would seem to give him a head start in working with village board members to address issues facing the community. He gets our endorsement.
