P.R.O.G.R.E.S.S. WITH PURPOSE

It has been an honor to serve as Mayor of Forest Park the last 4 years. In my capacity as Mayor, I have made three promises: first, to serve with, and to restore, respect and dignity to the office of Mayor, second, to establish foundational change while coining the term, “It Is A New Day in Forest Park” and finally, usher in P.R.O.G.R.E.S.S.

"It Is A New Day in Forest Park"

— Mayor Angelyne Butler, MPA

Mayor Butler always knew her calling stemmed around servant leadership. She has stated on many occasions that serving others provides an intrinsic gratification that one cannot put into words.  As such, despite life’s ebbs and flow, Mayor Butler always operated in her faith.  Her efforts and dedication led to her becoming the 24th Mayor for the City of Forest Park and the first person of color to hold said seat.  While being the first is a phenomenal accomplishment being significant and having a significant impact on those in which she is elected to serve is her focus and continuing to make her daughter and family proud and representing the City and Residents of Forest Park with dignity and respect is her utmost priority.
