Honoring Northbrook Village President Sandy Frum


Sandy Frum, a consummate public servant, is retiring after 12 years as Village President and more than four decades of service to her community.


Sandy has had a storied career in the 44 years she and her husband, Carlos, have called Northbrook home. In fact, Sandy’s tenure in municipal service began in 1981 when she became a Northbrook Park District Commissioner. That was swiftly followed by her time as a Commissioner on the Northbrook Plan Commission.


Sandy was first elected as a Village Trustee in April of 1987 where she served the community for 34 years. In 2009, she was elected Village President where she continued to serve until her retirement this year.


In addition to her leadership in Northbrook, she was an active member of the Northwest Municipal Conference where she served on the Executive Board and as Chair of the Legislative Committee.


In her private time, Sandy is an active member of the Northbrook Civic Foundation, the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, the Rotary Club of Northbrook, the Rotary District 6440 Leadership Team, and Temple Jeremiah.

Sandy’s years of public service highlight her exceptional commitment to the residents and businesses of the Village of Northbrook, and the Cook County Board wishes her the very best going forward!
