Next Lakewood Village President Phil Stephan

Philip Stephan

Unless there is a successful write-in campaign for the Village Presidency of Lakewood, Trustee Phil Stephan will succeed interim President Carl Davis.

No one else filed for the two-year term to complete the term won by Paul Serwatka in 2017.

Stephan was Serwatka’s closest ally on the Board.

One person running for the one two-year Trustee slot will come from these two candidates:

  • Patrick Rexroat
  • Pamela Eddy

Four-year term candidates for three seats are

  • Doug Ulrich
  • Brian Augustine
  • Ryan Burman

Augustine, Rexroat and Ulrich are appointed incumbents.


Next Lakewood Village President Phil Stephan — 4 Comments

  1. Phil is a straight shooter who gets things done.

    Lakewood will have an excellent Village President.

  2. Congratulations to Phil and to the Village of Lakewood.

    He will accomplish so much, you may need to have a bigger village to develop.

    Congratulations again on a very competent man.


  3. If the population of Lakewood reaches 5,000, taxpayers will be saddled with a Lakewood Police Pension Plan.

    Now, police are in the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund, which is well-funded because of mandatory funding which started in the late 1960’s.

    The only alternative to avoiding a police pension fund which I can envision is contracting with the Sheriff’s Department, whose officers are also in IMRF.
