Citizens Advisory Board

The Citizens Advisory Board is a program that was instituted by Lake County State's Attorney Michael Nerheim shortly after taking the oath of office in 2012. It is comprised of a diverse and vital group of community leaders from across Lake County tasked with providing a point of engagement with our community. The intent of the Citizens Advisory Board is to allow a way for constituents to voice concerns and potential solutions for the issues facing individuals living in our county.

The Board is a dynamic and evolving group of people.  As the composition of its membership has expanded, there has been an infusion of diverse opinions, ideologies, and perspectives.  This, in turn, has allowed the office to be responsive to the needs of our ever-changing community.

The current composition of the Citizens Advisory Board includes:

Crystal Massey

Loyda Santiago

Elroy Reed

Pastor Robert Williams

Paula Carballido

Reverand John Caples

Tynisha Gardner

Vance Wyatt

As a reminder, while the Citizens Advisory Board is tasked with providing a point of engagement with our community, people are always invited to reach out to the Lake County State's Attorney's Office via the main phone number at (847) 377-3000 or through email at statesattorney@lakecountyil.gov with any questions, concerns, issues or ideas.
