DuPage Forest Board District 4 Will Get New Face


A Republican and Democrat are vying for the District 4 DuPage County Forest Preserve seat, which is now held by Michael Formento, in the Nov. 6 general election.

Formento lost the Republican primary this spring to challenger Tim Whelan.

Whelan is a private-practice attorney from Wheaton. Democrat Robert Flesvig is a chartered financial consultant who also lives in Wheaton.

District 4 includes all or parts of Addison, Carol Stream, Downers Grove, Glen Ellyn, Glendale Heights, Lombard, Winfield and Wheaton.

Whelan: Providing responsive leadership on the DuPage County Forest Preserve for fiscal responsibility with taxpayers money preserving the green the taxpayers green.

Q. Should the district be in the golf course business? If so, please explain the benefit. If not, please detail why. Should the district consider selling any of its holdings?

Flesvig: Golfing is declining by 15 percent a year. It is a great sport but most taxpayers do not play golf. Most taxpayers walk, ride and bike in the woods and breathe clean air from the forests. I think sticking to forests, prairies and wetlands is the best policy. …
