Following consultation with the rest of the Village Board, Arlington Heights Mayor Tom Hayes is pleased to announce the selection of Greg Padovani as his appointment to fill the vacant Village Trustee seat created by the resignation of former Trustee Thomas Glasgow. The appointment is expected to be made at the Village Board meeting on Tuesday, January 22, 2019.

“In a community of many dedicated public servants, Greg stood out as the best qualified candidate to help lead our Village forward in the months and years to come,” said Mayor Hayes regarding his appointment. “Greg’s honesty, integrity, and reputation within and outside the community are second to none. His endless list of qualifications and volunteer work includes: Board Member of the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce and Arlington Park District Foundation; Chairman of the Veterans Memorial Committee, the Memorial Day Parade/Ceremony Committee, and the local American Cancer Society Relay for Life; and member of the Village of Arlington Heights Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS). In all of these roles, Greg has demonstrated his commitment to selfless service to others and his dedication to always doing what’s right for the benefit of our community.”

Greg Padovani, age 67, and his wife, Char, have lived in Arlington Heights since 1982 and raised their two children in the community. He is the President and Founder of PENS Communications Systems, LLC (PCS). Founded in 2004, PCS provides individualized health education newsletters to patients from hospitals, medical schools and state Medicaid departments. Greg is also a U.S. Army veteran having served in the Medical Service Corps. His many awards and recognitions include: Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce Business Leader (2017) and Volunteer (2011) of the Year; Village of Arlington Heights Heart of Gold Recipient (2012); and, most recently, Illinois Bicentennial “Honor 200” Recipient (2018) honoring the community service of 200 military veterans around the state.
“I am confident that Greg shares the Board’s vision and approach to Village government and anticipate that the Trustees will unanimously concur in his appointment at the next Village Board meeting, after which he would be sworn in and immediately take his seat as Village Trustee,” said Mayor Hayes.
