John Spella, Algonquin Trustee,

 Welcomes You

Principled. Dedicated. Proven.

As your Algonquin Village Trustee for the past 16 years, I serve with integrity and dedication when addressing the concerns of Algonquin residents. I understand the value of working diligently to ensure Algonquin remains a great place to live. I believe conversations between trustees and residents are essential to building a healthy democracy and a balanced community.

Algonquin is my home. I have lived and worked here my entire life. I am self-employed and value my relationships with local and area businesses. I am committed to the continued prosperity and growth of our Algonquin community and each Algonquin resident.

Thank you,

John Spella, Algonquin Village Trustee

What People Are Saying About John Spella


The Daily Herald Editorial Board

"Algonquin is doing well. The village recently received a AAA bond rating from Standard & Poor's and property taxes have been flat or have decreased over multiple years. The three board members running for re-election can share in the credit for the financial success...And the best people to keep the village moving in the same direction are the trustees who have been doing it so far.

We endorse Stiegert, Sosine and Spella for Algonquin village board."
