Matthew J. Steward MBA ’07 is a mayoral candidate for Schaumburg in the Spring 2019 election. He is a Client Account Specialist at Hinshaw & Culbertson law firm and also serves as an adjunct professor at Dominican University.

Matthew has lived in Schaumburg his entire life but has not been as involved as he’d like. He has served on the Olde Schaumburg Centre Commission that oversees new development in the village’s historic district for about three years.

He said he believes he has the executive know-how to lead the village board, and he said he often negotiates with developers and believes he can be a help in filling some of Schaumburg’s empty storefronts. Matthew said his campaign is not based on opposition to existing policies.
