Former Lemont Mayor Richard Kwasneski has been reappointed chairman of the Pace board.

Kwasneski was reappointed to a fourth term as chairman of the board for the suburban bus service.

“I am proud of the strong relationships Pace and I have built with our region’s stakeholders and look forward to continuing to work with our county leaders and partner agencies to maintain and enhance Northeastern Illinois’ transit network,” Kwasneski said in a news release announcing his reappointment.

Kwasneski has been the Pace chairman since 2006 and first joined the board as a director in 2002.

He was mayor and a village trustee in Lemont from 1987 to 2001. Kwasneski continues to live in Lemont.

Kwasneski also served as executive director of the Joliet Arsenal Development Authority, a local agency created to oversee the transfer of certain sections of the arsenal to private development that included CenterPoint Intermodal Center-Elwood.

Will County Executive Larry Walsh, who votes on behalf of Will County, supported Kwasneski’s reappointment, which received unanimous support from the suburban county officials who vote on the appointment.

Pace provides bus service in Will, DuPage, Kane, McHenry, Lake and suburban Cook counties.
