Local attorney Kevin Gallaher is no stranger to service to his community. Following his seven years spent on City Council from 1995 to 2002, Gallaher became a leader in several other civic groups before his re-election to Council in May 2015.
Having seen a small farming town transform into one of the largest and most diverse cities in Illinois, Gallaher is a strong proponent of ensuring Naperville business owners’ concerns are balanced against City rules and regulations and developing strategies to encourage redevelopment of outdated commercial properties.
Gallaher previously served as the president of Turning Pointe Autism Foundation and Naperville Responds for Hurricane Katrina as well as co-chairman of the Naperville United Way’s annual campaign in 2002 and 2003. Gallaher has also served on the Transportation Advisory Board, as district director for West Suburban Mass Transit, as chairman of the 2001-2002 Naperville Development Partnership and as a member of the Illinois Autism Society Human Rights Committee.
Gallaher holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government from St. John’s University and a law degree from DePaul College of Law. A resident of Naperville for 26 years, Gallaher is married to wife Kathleen and has two sons, Tom and Frankie, and a daughter, Meghan.
Councilman Gallaher's current term expires in 2017.
