CITY TOWN residents enthusiastically support
As a recent resident of Frankfort, I whole-heartedly endorse Jim Holland as Mayor of the Village. It is evident Jim Holland has a progressive vision for Frankfort. I enjoy Downtown Frankfort and the variety of activities hosted by the Village of Frankfort.
We are supporting Jim Holland for Mayor, because he has proven that he can stimulate smart economic growth within Frankfort while preserving our community’s core values and charm. We look forward to the future progress of Frankfort with Mayor Holland’s attention on economic development, fiscal responsibility and historic preservation. Jim’s personal and professional dedication towards Frankfort makes him the best candidate for Mayor.
Since Mayor Holland has been in office he has proven himself to be loyal, reputable and sincere. He is actively involved in projects to ensure continued improvements in Frankfort. The smart vote would be Jim Holland for mayor. That will be my vote.
I think Frankfort’s citizens are fortunate to have two very worthy candidates running for mayor. Both candidates have a demonstrated passion for making our Village a wonderful place to live and work. However, with respect to Mr. Morgan, I am proud to say that I will be voting for Jim Holland. I have been a resident of Frankfort since 2003. Since Jim Holland has been my mayor, I have seen some very positive changes in the Village. We have some outstanding new corporate citizens become a part of the fabric of our Village – Mariano’s and Emagine Theater to name a few. Our town has a beautiful new Village Hall and is financially strong. I also appreciate the fact that Mayor Holland has dedicated his full time and attention to the affairs of our Village. He is not working a full-time job and trying sort through Village matters in his off-time. I feel that is a good reason why he has been able to be so involved in our community and perform his job as mayor so well.
We stand by Mayor Holland who is a trusted and proven leader in the Village of Frankfort. We have had the privilege of knowing him personally and professionally. He has integrity, is honest, dedicated and selfless in his service to our community.
Mayor Jim Holland is personable and very approachable. He has an ear for the residents of Frankfort and keeps his word regardless of the challenges. Jim embraces diversity, and with a proven track record of running the Village of Frankfort, Jim is also an effective leader.
As a Frankfort resident for almost 30 years and a Frankfort business owner for over 10 years, I know the importance of having a qualified mayor who listens to his constituents. Jim Holland has worked effectively with our community for the past several years. He is dedicated, experienced and focused on the needs of our residents and businesses. His concern in maintaining our small town charm is a priority. For those reasons, our entire family supports Mayor Holland in his reelection bid.
Jim Holland is a man of great integrity and character.
We support Mayor Holland because we feel he is more in tune with the residents and the needs of our community. While we agree with him on most positions, when we disagree, he listens — we are not simply dismissed because our view was contrary.
We support Mayor Holland because we love the way Frankfort has developed under his leadership.
The reason Frankfort has been voted “Best Community” is because of the continued commitment and involvement of Mayor Holland and his team. Jim is always available, approachable, and willing to discuss any issue on any level. As business owners and residents of Frankfort, Mayor Holland has proven to us that he is a strong leader and will stand up to challenging situations. Jim has a reputation for being honest, concerned, caring and willing to discuss any topic big or small. Both Jim and Stacy have been constant supporters of local businesses and charitable organizations for as long as they have lived in Frankfort. We would be wary of any candidate who hasn't shown the desire to be an active part of the community.
My family and I will be supporting Mayor Jim Holland in the upcoming mayoral election because of his endless dedication and constant efforts to improve Frankfort. Mayor Holland was one of the first people we met when we moved to Frankfort, and right away his warm nature and kind spirit made us feel welcome in the town I am proud to call home.
We support Mayor Holland because he guided Frankfort through the recession without compromising the quality of its development, he lowered the Village tax rate, and he didn’t lose sight of the Village’s long term goals. He also successfully completed the vital Route 30 expansion when funding was very difficult to obtain. Mayor Holland has assembled a professional staff of administrators, and being "retired" allows him to devote more of his energy to keep Frankfort the most desirable community in the South suburbs.
As residents of Frankfort for 12 years, we have watched Mayor Holland work very hard for the things that matter to us... improved roads and infrastructure, a solid and reliable tax base for great schools, and many new opportunities for dining and entertainment. His hard work, ethics, and integrity will ensure Frankfort remains
As Frankfort residence for over 28 years, we have witnessed our community grow and in recent years your even handed administration. Your involvement with community affairs and responsive attitude is impressive. The time and effort you are devoting to our community is exceptionally impressive and appreciated – We would like this to continue.
I am proud to support Mayor Holland in his re-election campaign. Our Mayor and Stacy participate in all Frankfort community events. He has guided Frankfort's progression into the 21st Century while honoring its rich history.
We are pleased to recommend Jim Holland as our candidate of choice for Mayor, Village of Frankfort.
Football has always been a huge part of our lives and it all started with the Frankfort Falcons. Mayor Holland has always been a huge supporter of this program that will forever help the youth of Frankfort achieve their dreams both on and off the field.
Jim is a passionate leader and someone who genuinely understands the pulse and character of what makes Frankfort such a successful community to live in. His enthusiasm to serve the interests of the residents and businesses in our community is unparalleled. Although Jim is sensitive about preserving the 1890's charm of our community we appreciate how in his tenure he has been innovative and forward thinking in bringing new development, vital growth and modern conveniences into Frankfort.
We have been homeowners in Frankfort for over 10 years. During that time, under the focused leadership of Mayor Holland our village has seen tremendous growth.

We feel very fortunate to have them as neighbors and friends. We have seen the commitment that Jim has for the community. He is very passionate about Frankfort and is always looking for opportunities to make it a better place to live.
“I hope to see you around town.” These are the words Jim Holland chose in closing his letter to our community on the Village website. And, we can personally attest to the genuine nature of his words. Despite having close to 18,000 community members living in Frankfort, Jim will stop in the grocery store to ask about our family, attend a local business’s 20th anniversary event held in Chicago, and offer to meet with citizens about unique community ideas he may have never considered himself. He takes the time to know who we are and what our concerns may be with the same warmth, friendliness, and professionalism he has displayed since starting on the Village Board as a trustee. Clearly, Mayor Holland’s leadership, vision, and character have served our Village well since 2008, as his focus continues to be on the citizens of Frankfort and developing a thriving community for all to enjoy.
Mayor Holland IS Frankfort; he's worked on behalf of the residents to maintain Frankfort's identity as a family friendly, safe community which we are proud to call home.
One day I was coming out of a subdivision in Frankfort, planning to turn onto Laraway Road. As I approached the stop sign, I noticed a man sitting on the curb next to his motorcycle at the corner. Hmmmm, your motorcycle is having engine trouble and you’re stranded. Taking pity on the guy, I rolled down the window to ask him if he needed help.
Jim Holland is the most hard working and honest mayor I have dealt with period.
We are happy to support Jim Holland for another term as Mayor of the Village of Frankfort. When we moved here in 2000 I couldn't even buy a pair of socks in town. I love the convenience and want to shop in my town. Jim Holland and his board have made great city improvements. It looks beautiful! What I noticed when I was on a Community Service Committtee was that Jim Holland would listen to all comments. I've never seen anything pass on the Committee that wasn't throughly discussed with the public and parties involved. We think Jim Holland is an asset to Frankfort to move us forward in the next four years!
We strongly endorse Jim Holland for re-election as Mayor of Frankfort. As evidenced by the steadily managed growth of the business environment, along with steadfast enforcement of all of the villages regulations, Jim illustrates a mature, logical, and diplomatic style of management and as a result, has gained our support for re-election.
I am Jeff Boubelik, retired Executive Director of the Frankfort Park District for 12 years.
I am a business owner and active member of the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce. I have witnessed firsthand Jim Holland help our business community with support and cooperation. During Jim's years as mayor I have watched Frankfort become the envy of other local business communities. As a historic Frankfort business owner of 24 years I have watched the Historic Frankfort Business Community evolved from an "unattractive ghost town" to a beautiful and thriving business and social community. As a Frankfort resident of 35 years I have worked with Jim on numerous projects. I have watched Jim selflessly represent the Frankfort community based on what is best for Frankfort and without a personal agenda.
Excellent Mayor, Excellent leader, Excellent friend.
I am a resident and small business owner in Frankfort. I see the positive results of Jim’s guidance in my neighborhood, in the business community, and throughout the village. I believe Jim is the right person to be our mayor.
As a Frankfort resident for 14 years and a Plan Commissioner for 6 years, I have had the privilege of serving alongside Mayor Jim Holland, a strong leader whose dedication, commitment and care has helped our community to thrive in the past, present and future. As mayor, he has represented the high standards of excellence that Frankfort is known for focusing on transparency, inclusiveness and a vision for long-term prosperity. I endorse him for another term in 2017.
Jim Holland will continue to be our choice for mayor of Frankfort. He is a man of integrity who loves his town! From getting the widening of Rt. 30 completed to being a marvelous steward of downtown family activities, Jim is a trusted leader who gets things done.
I feel that you have successfully managed our town expenses very well during the past years. I also feel that you, as a mayor, support all of the events from our Chamber of Commerce, which are geared for the young children to the adults. What is very important that you do include the senior groups who are involved with the town police department seniors on patrol and the triad group and help out them in situations with their homes whenever you can or direct them to the correct person.
