David Hanks was first elected to the Sauk Village Board in April, 1999 and was re-elected for a third four-year term in April, 2007, as Village Trustee.
Since serving on the Village Board his assignments have included chairing the Economic Development Committee, Commissioner on the Calumet Corridor Council, Route 30 Corridor Council and the South Suburban Commuter Rail Corridor Sub-Committee and is currently a member on State Representative Anthony De Luca's Safety Advisory Committee.
As our country was starting to slide into the worse economic times since the “Great Depression” David was challenged with the opportunity to work with local businesses, financial institutions and government agencies to assist our residence. In the Fall of 2005 David was appointed as Chair of the Sauk Village Housing Committee.
As Chair, David was given the task of forming a committee from the ground and bringing on key individuals which were instrumental in developing a committee into which is now known as the Sauk Village Housing Commission.
The commission has hosted many workshops over the years to assist residence with home improvements and financial aid with the assistance of local businesses. In 2010 the Sauk Village Housing Commission hosted the first NACA “Home Save / Purchase” workshop for residence in the far South region.
David is also a Quality Engineer for ACCO Brands in Lincolnshire, IL. He is responsible for supervising inbound auditors and technicians for direct products and quality control at their manufacturing facility in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.
David is a longtime resident of Sauk Village and has served the community in his youth as a cadet on the Sauk Village Police Department, and later as a Commissioner on the Zoning Board of Appeals.
David is married to Linda and they have ten children. David and Linda love living in Sauk Village and are excited to be part of a town that has so much to offer--great quality of life, wonderful people, and many opportunities.
David considers it an honor and privilege to serve the people of Sauk Village in his role on the Village Board and encourages citizens to contact him regarding their concerns, suggestions, and comments about the Village of Sauk Village
