The mayor of a Chicago suburb is in the spotlight for her absurd expenditures on the taxpayers dime.


Self-proclaimed “super mayor” Tiffany Henyard (D-Ill.) has garnered national attention after spending taxpayer dollars on a luxury trip to Las Vegas.

Henyard was elected to serve as the mayor of Dolton, Illinois in 2021. The city is a small Chicago suburb with over 20,000 residents. 

The Democrat’s outrageous antics have made headlines in local outlets, but have only recently gained the national spotlight.

Such antics include using taxpayer dollars for a luxury trip to Las Vegas, to film music videos, hire DJs for town meetings, taking cops off the streets for her own security detail and placing billboards with her face all over the Chicago suburb.

Charges for Las Vegas included $3,741 for a first-class round trip flight, $8,400 for hotels, $587 at Ruth’s Chris Steak House and $400 at Hot N’ Juicy Crawfish.

Many have compared the mayor to a real-life episode of Parks and Recreation.

Additionally, the Democrat also serves as the Supervisor of Thorton Township.

She received $285,000 last year for both positions, but a recent legislation Henyard pushed through would cut that salary by nearly 90% if she isn’t re-elected.

Henyard also has no shame in self-promotion. Her face can be seen all over Dolton, even on billboards advertising senior services or fresh produce.

Trustees in the Village of Dolton are growing tired of Henyard. 

During an interview with Fox News Digital, Brittney Norwood, a trustee in the Village of Dolton, said she feels as if she’s under a dictatorship.

“She manipulates the situation by telling the residents that we don’t want them to have the services,” Norwood said. “The truth of the matter is that she spends so much that we don’t have the money for the services.”
