Township Supervisor Raúl Lemus
Phone: 847-428-6560

Appointed and sworn into office in October 2021, Supervisor Raúl Lemus is honored to build on his more than four years of serving in local government in a number of roles, including being elected as a Village of Pingree Grove Trustee, serving on the Village of Pingree Grove Planning & Zoning Commission, participating on the Village of Pingree Grove Park Advisory Commission, and periodically working as an Election Judge. As a result, these experiences have helped him learn more about local government policymaking, budgeting, and more. Graduating from the Pingree Grove Police Department Citizen Police Academy and participating in a Land Use & Zoning Workshop of the Metro West Council of Government have also increased his local knowledge. As a long-time resident of northern Kane County, where he and his wife are raising their two children, Raúl is faithfully committed to the community he serves.
