English: Elmwood Park is a village bordering the northwest side of the City of Chicago in Cook County, Illinois, United States. The population was 25,405 at the 2000 census. The community has long maintained a large Italian-American population, with a more recent influx of Polish-American and Hispanic residents. Peter N. Silvestri has presided as its village president since May 1, 1989. In April 2011, three Board of Trustee positions were up for election. Incumbent trustees and United Party of Elmwood Park candidates Alan T. Kaminski, Carmen P. Forte, and school board president Angela Stranges won the three seats, with 2,051 votes, 1,951 votes, and 1,814 votes, respectively. Defeated in the race were Neighborhood Voice Party candidates Anthony Del Santo (1,531 votes), Phillip Marcantelli (1,505 votes), and Sandra Gorney (1,360 votes).
