Politics

The Village first Mayor was Thomas Nichols who was elected in 1957, when the village was incorporated, he was succeeded by Roger Theisen who served until 1977. Edward Paesel was elected the village's 3rd mayor, beating out incumbent Mayor Roger Theisen in 1977, Paesel was a school teacher at the time of his election. Paesel was succeeded by Mark Collins, an iron worker, who became a part-time mayor in May, 1989. Collins was beat out by Roger Peckham, his own appointee to the Village Board, in 1997 who continues to serve in 2007. Peckham had 2 very close challenges in his last 2001 and in 2005.


The Village hired a Village Manager in 1988, at the time outgoing mayor Edward Paesel said that there was nobody at Village Hall with the experience necessary to run the administrative functions, and the Village's mayor's position was made part-time, so he felt it necessary to create a Village Manager's position which the Village Board at the time agreed. Richard Dieterich was hired and continues today as Village Manager. Dieterich relocated to Sauk Village from Nebraska.


In 1989, Joseph Wiszowaty, a high school student was elected to the Village Board as a Village Trustee, and became the youngest man elected in the State of Illinois. Wiszowaty served his term from 1989 to 1993, when he challenged incumbent mayor Mark Collins but lost in a three way race. Wiszowaty was born and raised in Sauk Village and would have been the youngest mayor Sauk Village ever elected had he succeeded. It was expected that Wiszowaty would run again in 1995, and would have run for Mayor again in 1997, but Wiszowaty chose not to seek election to his old seat on the Village Board.


One of the most controversial incidents occurred in 1985 when incumbent Village Clerk, Agnes Theodore was beat out at the polls after many years as Village Clerk by Nancy McConathy. Theodore, whose husband was the Executive Assistant to the Mayor, refused to leave her position and McConathy filed suit against the Village to force Theodore to leave. Before the matter could be resolved, McConathy died suddenly and the suit was finally settled by the Village with McConathy's estate. The Sauk Village Library District changed the name of the library's district to the Nancy L. McConathy Public Library District in her honor, the Mayor and Village Board have never honored Ms. McConathy.


Over the last 20 years the demographical make up of Sauk Village has changed from a predominantly white blue collar middle class community to a more racially integrated community. Building of the Village's new Village Hall began in 2007, as well as numerous industrial construction projects which hope to bring jobs to the area which has seen jobs leaving.


Government

Sauk Village is governed by an elected 6 member Board of Trustees, Mayor and Village Clerk. The mayor appoints the Village Manager, Treasurer, Police Chief, Fire Chief, Public Works Superintendent, other Village Department Heads and members of Committees and Commissions with the "advice and consent" of the Village Board of Trustees.


In 1988, after chosing not to seek re-election for mayor, Edward Paesel and the Village Board of Trustees approved an Ordinance establishing a position of Village Manager. Richard "Dick" Dieterich, has served as the Village's only Village Manager since 1988. The Village Manager handles the administrative function of the village according to Ordinance, while the mayors position is now part-time and he retains executive powers and those granted by Illinois Statute. The mayor also serves as the Village's Liquor Controll Commissioner as well.


Sauk Village is also services by the Bloom Township Board of Trustees, Nancy L. McConathy Library District and Consolidated School District 168, High School District 206 and Prairie State College Board of Trustees. All of these bodies have elective offices
