Bipartisan Accomplishments

Chris Guy is getting things done for you.

Chris Guy is making the Metro East a better place to live and work for residents in Collinsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville and Granite City.

As Township Trustee, Chris Guy:

  • Prevented Collinsville Township from increasing the annual property tax levy. In doing so, all services remained intact.
  • Returned his annual 3% annual pay raise to the Senior Center.
  • Led the effort to create the Township’s first modern website.
  • Made the township more transparent by posting expenditures online so you know how your tax dollars are spent.

As Maryville Trustee, Chris Guy:

  • Worked with the board and Mayor to secure funding to complete the Maryville Centennial Memorial located off 159.
  • Helped improve emergency water boil alerts by working with village staff and trustees to team up with CodeRED so that water customers can receive emergency alerts on their phone or e-mail.
  • Negotiated the 2018 waste disposal contract. Guy was successful at keeping the Senior Rate in place for Allied/Republic services customers while locking in lower rates than our neighboring communities.
  • Supported a budget that resulted in a balanced budget for 2017. This could not have been done without teamwork from my colleagues and the Mayor of Maryville.

Dissolve CARD

  • Worked with a bipartisan group of residents and elected officials from Collinsville, Maryville, and Glen Carbon to put the Dissolve CARD initiative on the ballot. By doing, this will reduce property taxes and improve Metro East parks. Voting YES will improve our parks and reduce your property tax bill. It's a win-win!
