What to know about Roscoe trustee candidate Brian Black


Brian Black

Brian Black is one of seven candidates running for trustee position in the Village of Roscoe election, April 4, 2023.

He decided to throw his hat in the ring for several reasons. He wants to get involved with the community. “I would like to be a voice for the people living in Roscoe, and vote independently. Communication needs to improve between the board and residents of the village. I am a good listener and I want to let residents know they are heard.”

“My number one gripe is that there is segregation within the board.”

Brian would like to see controlled growth in Roscoe, especially along the I-90 corridor and Rockton Road.

He grew up in Rockford, IL, and attended Rockford schools. His family were owners of The Manor Restaurant in Beloit. For 22 years, Brian has worked in the health and safety industry, specifically consulting and mobile testing. “Right now, I am semi-retired, but I am going back to work in the fall.”

His children, Kaleigh, 15 and Braydon, 14, attend Roscoe schools. The family lives in the Chicory Ridge subdivision.

“I have a strong commitment to the community and have the time and abilities to make Roscoe a better place to live. There seems to be a lack of trust between trustees. I would work to repair that trust. I hope the people of Roscoe will get out and vote in this election. If you don’t vote, you won’t have a say in what is happening in your community.”
