Bill Patterson and his wife Melanie have lived in the Whispering Oaks neighborhood of Lake Forest since 2014. Their decision to become residents of Lake Forest was based on an appreciation of the city’s commitment to building and sustaining a strong community through infrastructure, schools, business and recreation while maintaining sound fiscal policies.
As a caucus member, Bill hopes to not only participate in the vetting of candidates, but to also identify other residents who may be willing to participate in community leadership roles so that the city of Lake Forest can continue to be a wonderful place to live.
Bill grew up in the Chicago area and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Commercial Aviation Flight from the University of North Dakota. He currently works as an airline pilot for United Airlines based at O’Hare International Airport as a first officer on the Boeing 767/757 aircraft.
