Trustee Walter Kriese


I was first elected as a Village Trustee in 2011 and served as the Chair of Public Works and the Public Safety committees. My first term ended in 2015 and was recently re-elected.

After living in Chicago most of my life, my wife and I moved to Hainesville in 2003.  We have been married for 41 years and have been blessed with two adult children, two grandchildren and a third grandchild due in July 2017.

My wife and I have worked together at the same pump manufacturing company for 33 years where I am currently a Maintenance Technician. In this role, I have gained the experience of evaluating failures and determining solutions, for our plant operations and on our operating equipment.  I also perform the required maintenance of our plant equipment.  I have held leadership roles within the company as part of the Plant Safety Committee, the Preventive Maintenance Committee and as the Shop Chairman for our union. Much of what my career has taught me has blended into my role as trustee.

Outside of work and my role as trustee, I serve as an usher at Lord of Glory Church.  I also have several hobbies that include hunting and fishing.

I am grateful for the opportunity and I look forward to serving the Village of Hainesville.
