Meet the Candidates: Jay Heiferman, Homewood (free)

Jay Heiferman

Age: 62
Education: B.S. Business Administration, University of Iowa.
Job/role: I’m an associate with Hard Rock Live Entertainment following a 37-year career successfully operating AAA RENTAL System.
Family: Wife BJ.
Other elected positions: Trustee for the Village of Homewood since 2006.

Traffic safety issues are important to my family and, I believe, to most residents.

Recognizing and executing the responsible creation, use and maintenance of public infrastructure is key to our success as a village.

We must maintain momentum in attracting quality development throughout Homewood.

Successful execution of a sensible well-considered plan for safety and use enhancements on 183rd Street. I encourage the continuing increase in traffic law enforcement to meet the need. Improving vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian safety and enjoyment throughout Homewood is a top priority.

We’ve just accomplished the largest public works project that Homewood has ever undertaken. We created a new, reliable source of water at a fixed contract rate. I’d like to complete the next major water project, building a new, modern, much-needed downtown water tower, in the same manner: expertly managed, on budget, and with no debt. 

I will continue to be active in our non-stop, direct pursuit of the best economic opportunities for our community while using the most creative ‘tools’ to do so. I strongly support our council-manager form of government and will continue to hire stellar management and staff to execute our goals. This is one of the reasons that Homewood is among the most respected towns in the south suburbs.
