Professional Profile

Trustee Dickson moved to Lindenhurst in 2015 with his wife Sue (who grew up on Northgate Road), and their then 3-year-old son, Ryan.

Before Pat's election to the Village board in 2021, he served on the Lakes Commission for three years, as well as volunteering with the Village’s ERIN program. He also created the “Rise Up for Grant” Adopt-a-Highway group that cleans up Sand Lake Road, the “GoGreen Lindenhurst” group, as well as participating in the Village’s citizen’s academy and the strategic planning committee. Trustee Dickson is on the Village Finance Committee, Lakes Commission, as well as the SWALCO Board of Directors.

Patrick spent 13 years in the Air Force repairing electronics. After getting his Journalism degree at the University of Connecticut, he spent 16 years as an editor at “Stars and Stripes”, the hometown newspaper for service-members overseas, becoming Washington Bureau Chief and Middle East Bureau Chief.

After graduating from Community College of Lake County, he became an X-ray technician for NorthShore University Health System. He currently works in Immediate Care, doing X-rays and patient care; including testing people for COVID.

Patrick has coached little league with LVTB, been involved with Boy Scouts and, with his neighbors, created Winterfest and Venetian Night on Lake Linden.
