Mayor George Gaulrapp

Mayor George GalrappElected – 2005 and 2009. Current term expires April 30, 2013.

I am proud to be a life-long resident of the City of Freeport. My wife, Karrie, and I are proud parents of Rachael, Alicia, Courtney and Jack.

I graduated from Freeport's Aquin Catholic High School in 1977 and received a Business Administration Degree in 1981 from Monmouth College.

For 20 years I held several positions in the Dental Laboratory and Supply Sectors. More recently I spent several years in the dot com world with E*Trade Solutions Group.

I strongly believe in serving my community and proudly did so for the eight years as 1st Ward Alderman prior to being elected Mayor. I have served as a Board Member of the YMCA and the Aquin Catholic Schools, and have coached girls basketball and boys soccer. I am currently a member of Kiwanis Club.

By incorporating my sales and marketing background into my Mayoral position, it strengthens our climate of economic development and potential for growth. In addition, I believe in true customer service and we should be treating our citizens as clients. We are a City open for business. Come in and join Freeport, Illinois!
