Hayes First to Announce Run for Mayor
Thomas W. Hayes, Village President of Arlington Heights, has announced his intent to run for a second, four-year term. “With the unanimous support and endorsement of the entire Village Board, and with the support and encouragement of my family, I humbly announce my intention to run for re-election as Arlington Heights Village President on April 4, 2017.” Hayes said. In the last election in April 2013, Hayes beat candidates Ron Drake and Mark Hellner. During the 2013 campaign, contenders argued that processes for opening a new business were tedious in Arlington Heights, and there was also scrutiny over the decision moving forward for an expensive new police headquarters. Stormwater and flooding was also a major issue during the campaign.

No other candidates have yet announced a run for Village President (Mayor) of Arlington Heights.

“My first term as Mayor has gone very quickly.” He added. “In collaboration with the Village Board, our outstanding Village Staff, and our many community partners, we have not only been able to maintain, but further enhance the quality of life we enjoy in Arlington Heights over the last three years.” Hayes especially thanked the Park District, Library, and School Districts for all they contribute on a daily basis to help achieve that common goal.

In listing major accomplishments over the course of his first term, Mayor Hayes identified the following:

1. Stable, family-oriented community – Arlington Heights was recently voted the best place to live in the greater Northwest Suburbs;

2. Financial strength – balanced budget and healthy bond rating (AA+);

3. Low crime rate – Arlington Heights has the 5th lowest crime rate of 437 cities in the U.S. of similar or higher populations; and

4. Strong and vibrant business climate – 101 new businesses, 982 new jobs, and $1.2 billion in retail sales in 2015.

Hayes noted that while Arlington Heights has achieved great things over these years, much remains to be done. “Continued State budget uncertainty, and fluctuating general economic conditions require a steady hand at the helm.” Hayes added. “So our work is not complete! My decision to run for another term as Village President is based, in large part, on the desire to help see through to completion a number of difficult challenges that lie ahead.” In particular, he noted that the funding and implementation of Village-wide stormwater improvements and the construction of a new police station will remain high priorities in the coming months and years.

Hayes is proud to have been endorsed by the entire Village Board, including Trustee/President Pro Tem Thomas Glasgow, and Trustees Bert Rosenberg, Joe Farwell, John Scaletta, Carol Blackwood, Mike Sidor, Jim Tinaglia, and Robin LaBedz. Noting that each Board member votes
independently, Hayes added that they all vote with the best interests of the Village in mind. “Our reputation for open and honest government is second to none and we work very effectively as a

In concluding, Tom Hayes said that he looks forward to the opportunity to share more about his view of the future of Arlington Heights in the months prior to the election. “Should I be fortunate enough to win, I will continue to work with our Board, Staff, and community partners to make Arlington Heights an even better place to live and work.”
