Former Barrington Hills Police ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ Chief Endorsement

December 16th, 2020
I am pleased to endorse and support Brian Cecola for President of the Village of Barrington Hills. I have known Brian for many years, from his time spent serving the community as a Firefighter to his dedication and public service as a Village Trustee.
Prior to my retirement as Chief of Police, I worked under the direction and leadership of Brian Cecola as he served the Village as Chairman of both the Roads and Bridges and Public Safety Committees. Trustee Cecola was instrumental in the successful effort to save taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars annually by taking advantage of efficiencies within the Police Department while ensuring that public safety was not compromised. Brian has a thorough understanding of the workings and importance of public safety and I am confident that he will continue to advance and support the Barrington Hills Police Department as Village President.
Trustee Cecola is a longtime resident of the Barrington area, his love of the unique beauty and open spaces in the Village and his concern for the issues faced by residents had always been evident to me during my many interactions with him. Brian is a strong and decisive leader who shows compassionate understanding of other opposing viewpoints.
In closing, I am confident that Trustee Cecola will make an excellent Village President. He has the demonstrated experience and knowledge necessary to continue moving the Village of Barrington Hills in a positive direction. Please join me in supporting Brian Cecola for President of the Village of Barrington Hills.
Respectfully Submitted,
Rich Semelsberger Chief of Police (retired)
