I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Mayor Alice Gallagher of Western Springs. Having the pleasure of working collaboratively alongside her on several issues, Alice Gallagher was always thoughtful, diligent, and especially kind when engaged in her civic responsibilities as mayor. I saw firsthand how strongly devoted Mayor Gallagher was to her community of Western Springs.
She leaves behind a legacy of unwavering commitment to her community and an exceptional record of public service. Her leadership will be missed. My deepest condolences go out to her family at this most difficult time.
- Commissioner Sean M. Morrison
