In Memory of Joe Salerno

Bloomingdale Township is deeply saddened to inform you that our friend, mentor, and long time Bloomingdale Township Trustee Honorable Joseph G. Salerno passed away.

Joe Salerno was a kind, generous, wise soul, whose trusted advice, and humble nature was unique. Those of us who were close to him knew of the many times he provided funeral services at no cost for fallen police officers, or for those who could not afford to pay, without ever asking for recognition. Joe also donated his time and money to a number of worthy causes, without fanfare, because he felt it was the right thing to do.

Joe has been a pillar of the Bloomingdale Township community for nearly 30 years. His positive influence could be felt everywhere. Joe served as president and co-owner of Salerno's Rosedale Chapels, chairman of the Roselle Chamber of Commerce & Industry, and director of the Taste of Roselle Commission. Joe actively participated with the Bloomingdale Lions Club, the Bloomingdale Parks Foundation, and the Chicagoland Italian-American Charitable Organization (or CIACO). Joe also regularly supported the Bloomingdale Shop With A Cop program as well as D.A.R.E. programs in area schools.

Joe was first elected as a Bloomingdale Township Trustee in 2001. In 2004, CIACO honored Joe as its "Man of the Year." In 2008, the Roselle Chamber of Commerce named its "Business Person of the Year" award after Joe in recognition of his dedicated service to the Roselle Chamber and the community. Joe was also a fixture of the annual Taste of Roselle event, calling bingo at the Chamber's tent for nearly 20 years.

His friendship and support will be greatly missed.


Supervisor Hovde helps Hanover Park Students

On Thursday February 21, Bloomingdale Township Supervisor Michael D. Hovde, Jr., visited the Spring Wood Middle School in Hanover Park to help moderate the Expo for their Gifted Language Arts program. The students gave informative interactive presentations on the media, and were given feedback from the panel. The panel consisted of Supervisor Hovde, Ryan Klassy, from Elgin Community College and Madhu Krishnamurthy, from the Daily Herald.  These outstanding young people demonstrated tools and techniques to identify bias in the news, and how to fact check stories.  Supervisor Hovde was pleased to see such a bright group of students get a chance to speak in front of a group, and they all did a wonderful job!
