Des Plaines Mayor Matt Bogusz began his four-year term after being sworn in before a standing-room-only crowd at city hall on Monday. Bogusz thanked his family, friends and supporters, and spoke about some of what he learned working with other city council members.
“We all are a collection, a combination of the experiences we’ve had and the lessons we’ve learned from each other,” Bogusz said. “And I’ve learned a lot from the people I’ve worked with.”
