From his Rockford office at Barrick, Switzer, Long, Balsley & Van Evera, LLP, Green has been the village attorney for fast-growing Machesney Park since 1991. He played a critical role in helping the village annex 1,400 acres of farmland that proved to be key in developing a tax base in the years to come. He also watched Machesney Park’s strip of Illinois 173 go from a sleepy back road to the fastest-growing corridor in the state. To say it’s been a rewarding journey is an understatement. “I have some sweat equity in Machesney Park,” Green says. “It wasn’t just me, but I certainly did my part.”
