Mayor Shapiro Appoints Larry Berg to Trustee Vacancy
On Monday night, the Deerfield Village Board of Trustees unanimously accepted Mayor Daniel C. Shapiro’s appointment of Larry Berg to the position of Trustee. Berg was sworn in to office following approval, filling the vacancy left by former Trustee Tom Jester’s recent resignation.
Berg, an attorney, previously served as the Chair of the Plan Commission, a role he has held since 2017. In addition, he has served on the commission since 2008. Prior to the Plan Commission, he served on the Board of Zoning Appeals. A Deerfield resident for 29 years, he is also a vice president on the Board of Directors of Shore Community Services, which provides services for individuals with developmental disabilities including early childhood intervention, developmental training, residential care, respite care and vocational services.
“I am honored to have been appointed by Mayor Shapiro to the Board of Trustees. I look forward to serving the Village of Deerfield and its residents in this new position,” Berg said.
Mayor Shapiro said Berg’s years of experience on the Plan Commission will be an asset to him in his new role.
“I am pleased to appoint Larry to Village Trustee,” Shapiro said. “Larry will have big shoes to fill, but given his many years on the Plan Commission, including as Chairman, I have no doubt that Larry will bring his energy and experiences to the Board in a very positive way. We are excited to have him!”
