In 1909 he was elected to serve as trustee on the village board and in 1917 was elected president of the board, serving as such for the succeeding ten years, during which time a number of projects for the improvement of conditions of general welfare were carried out in all of which he assumed a leadership and served the village in a highly satisfactory manner.

He was the present secretary of the school board and had served as such for the past eighteen years.
