Aide to District 4 City Commissioner Patty Sheehan
Bill Stevens was born and raised about an hour west of Chicago,
Illinois in the small town of Montgomery, Illinois. Bill has always been
a very hard worker and has worked
full-time since he was just 15 years old. After a handful of other
jobs, Bill landed a job at Bell
Laboratories (which eventually became AT&T and then Lucent
Technologies) in the Naperville, Illinois location. After an extensive career with Bell Labs/AT&T/Lucent
Technologies, Bill was able to realize a lifelong dream and move to
Bill Stevens has also worked as the Assistant Managing Director for a large luxury real estate company in downtown Orlando, before joining us here at City Hall. This along with Bill’s other career experiences make him a great asset to both Commissioner Sheehan and the residents of District 4 whom he now serves. Bill has a can-do attitude, a great mid-western work ethic and is always willing to take the time to talk and work with the residents of District 4 with genuine concern about their needs.
The one thing that anyone who knows Bill will say about him is that he is a Volunteer through and through. Bill has participated in Walks, Runs and Bicycling events for causes like The American Cancer Society, Special Olympics, the AIDS Walk, volunteering at a Senior Day Care Program, was on the Board to save a historic home (in Warrenville, IL), Breast Cancer Awareness, Food Drives for people in need, collecting dresses for Operation Princess Project (providing High School girls with free prom dresses), Toy and Clothing Drives for needy children and one of the one’s closest to his heart – the SPCA/Humane Society Walk. Bill is a huge animal lover and comes from, as he puts it “a Big Dog Family”. He states that everyone in his family currently has and always has had dogs and numerous other species of pets.
Bill’s hobbies include writing, collecting glass Christmas ornaments, traveling and spending time with his Partner, Bob and their three 4-legged kids – Kahlua (a chocolate Lab), Zena (an Abyssinian mix breed rescue cat) and their newest addition is a Rescue dog named Nemo (a Treeing Walker Coonhound mix) who was in a severe accident which left him with a deformed back paw. Because of his paw the Animal Shelter named him Nemo (after the little fish with a lucky fin) and of course the name fits and has stuck. Just like in the movie they call Nemo's foot his "Lucky Foot" as to make him feel lucky to have such a special paw - unlike any other dogs that he knows.
Bill Stevens states “I am delighted to be working with Commissioner Sheehan and serving the residents of District 4. It is a true honor to be working here in The City Beautiful.” Bill also mentioned "This is one of the greatest jobs I've ever had and I'm honored to be working with such dedicated people here at City Hall. People in public service do this for their love of the City and for their desire to try to help others and I'm proud to be a part of this wonderful team that I consider my City Family." Since joining the City in 2011, Bill has also been very involved in helping raise money for the City's Workplace Giving Campaign and also in the City's Wellness Week activities.
