The objectives and aims of the Clarendon Hills Community Caucus are to ensure honest and efficient management of Clarendon Hills village affairs by providing a means for non-partisan selection of village office candidates whose honesty and integrity are known and whose ability to manage village affairs has been demonstrated by success in other activities. ​
