Tom Dailly
I love Schaumburg. Since the day I moved here 36 years ago, I made it my goal to help my community become the best place to live, work, play, and raise a family.

I ran for Mayor because I believed with my 24 years of dedication and commitment having served on local committees and the village board, Schaumburg has become those things and more. As part of Schaumburg’s progress over the last 30 years, I have the knowledge and experience and proven leadership from those years to lead Schaumburg into the future, especially at a time when government is under pressure to provide the highest quality of public services while reducing the tax burden on residents and businesses alike.

As a leader with a proven track record of local government involvement, I will continue to work to reduce the tax burden on residents and businesses while continuing to provide a safe and vibrant community. As proof, over the last 8 years, Schaumburg has reduced the tax burden on its residents and businesses by 13%. No other community can make that claim. As Mayor, I pledge to reduce your village portion of your property taxes by another 5% by the end of the first year.

Schaumburg continues to be an economic powerhouse in the State of Illinois, generating more sales tax dollars to the state than any other community other than the City of Chicago. Why? Because we have built a community that values its residents and businesses and provides for a wonderful place to work, eat, and play.
My priority is to continue to provide the safest environment for residents and businesses alike so they can be comfortable knowing their investments are growing and that Schaumburg is the place to be.

In order for that to happen, Schaumburg needs someone that is knowledgeable of how local government works and experienced in its innerworkings to make this happen.
