West Chicago is not only my hometown, but it is the town where I currently live, work and play. This is a city filled with good-hearted, hardworking people, and I feel honored to serve on City Council where I can do some good and give back.”
Alderman Christine Dettmann was born and raised in unincorporated West Chicago, but for the past 18 years has lived just blocks from downtown. She currently works for Winfield Township, whose office is also in downtown West Chicago. She graduated from St. Francis High School and received undergraduate degrees from College of DuPage and Northern Illinois University.
Prior to being elected Alderman in 2021, she served for 6 years on the City of West Chicago’s Plan Commission/Zoning Board of Appeals. Alderman Dettmann currently sits on the Finance and Development Committees.
Her leisure time includes league volleyball, kayaking, camping, travel of any kind, and she will take vegetable gardening tips from anyone willing to share them.
