Dan is a tireless advocate for Morton Grove residents. Four years ago, he challenged the status quo and won a primary election against the incumbent Mayor. Since becoming Mayor, he established the Village’s first strategic plan, updated the Village logo, improved communications with residents, increased community programs and events and made bringing new businesses to Morton Grove a top priority—all while maintaining excellent Village services with little or no property tax increases. He is never too busy to visit our school children, attend neighborhood block parties, business grand openings, and other Village events.
Dan has served as the Village Clerk and a Village Trustee. He currently is a volunteer for the Morton Grove Days Commission. He serves on the Boards of the Morton Grove Foundation and Camp Independence, an organization that teaches Independence for children with Spina Bifida. Mayor DiMaria has also served the community as the Vice President of the Morton Grove Chamber of Commerce and as a Director of the Liponi Foundation. Dan works as a mortgage loan originator, helping families attain the American dream of buying their own home. He holds a Political Science degree from Loyola University. Dan and his wife Melodee, a life-long resident of Morton Grove have five children.
