By Benjamin Flowers: This week, Belizean/American Sylvestre Castellanos did his home country and his community proud by being sworn in for a second term on the Waukegan Township Board of Trustees in the state of Illinois.

Castellanos, who previously served for the past four years on the Township Board, was re-elected on April 6, and officially sworn in via zoom on Thursday, May 13.

“A long time member of the Waukegan Township extended family, Trustee Sylvestre, for the past 12 years, has been a steadfast volunteer at Staben House – whether he is repairing items or participating in/attending various events – he finds a way to give back to his community,” the Waukegan Township Board said.

The Board also said that, apart from his volunteering at the Staben House (homeless shelter), Castellanos is an avid traveler and a very active member of United Belizeans of Northern Illinois. Castellanos has been living in Waukegan since 1979 and graduated from both Lincoln Technical Institute and Gateway Community College with Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certification in Mechanic.

The Township board also described him as a “hardworking leader with strong integrity, morals, and values,” noting that he has been employed at Roquette America for 29 years as an MRO Store Room Planning Specialist where he manages a multi-million dollar parts and sales inventory.

Breaking Belize News joins with the family and friends of Sylvestre Castellanos, to applaud and congratulate him as a Belizean native making his mark in municipal government in the United States.
