Trustee Michael E. Camerer – 6.18.2020

Post Date:06/19/2020
Friday, June 19, 2020 - Bartlett elected officials and staff are profoundly saddened by the death of Village Trustee Michael E. Camerer. He died on Thursday, June 18, 2020. 

“His was a robust life of service and he certainly had more to give,” said Bartlett Village Administrator PaulaCamerer Casual Headshots-45 Schumacher. “He dedicated his life to helping others, as a doctor, teacher, Rotarian, village trustee, friend, father and husband. He led our community thoughtfully with care and passion and honor. Bartlett is the better for his service and we feel his loss deeply.”

Dr. Camerer moved to the village and opened his downtown Bartlett chiropractic office in 1990. During these past 30 years, his love and regard for the community was demonstrated through his active service in the Bartlett Rotary Club and the Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce, through his volunteer work with the Bartlett Veterans Memorial Foundation, the Boy Scouts of America Troop 227, the Village Church of Bartlett and more. He was also an adjunct professor at Judson University in Elgin. 

Trustee Camerer was first elected to a four-year seat on the Village Board in 2013 and was re-elected to a second term in 2017. 

In the March 2020 primary election, he successfully secured the GOP candidacy for the Illinois House of Representatives - District 45. Camerer’s run for the state legislature was motivated by his belief “that our state needs new direction and insight from people willing to listen to the residents of Illinois.” He was seeking to consolidate overlapping and redundant government agencies in order to better utilized taxpayer dollars and to enact new, powerful ethics legislation and tougher penalties for public corruption.

We ask everyone in the Village of Bartlett to join us in extending heartfelt thoughts, prayers, and deepest condolences to Trustee Camerer’s wife of 34 years Robin, his three adult children, his extended family and his friends during this difficult loss of a generous and dedicated public servant.
