She and her husband Patrick took their savings and got renderings of the project completed. They knew that it was going to take several million dollars to bring a project like the Saint Patrick’s to Dolton.

Tiffany Henyard Administrations under Fire For More Questionable Dealings in Dolton and Thornton Township

On the night that Tiffany Henyard was appointed to fill the seat formerly occupied by South Land political powerhouse Frank Zuccarelli as the Township Supervisor of Thornton Township, it was a shock to everyone in attendance. After being the last one of nine nominations, Thornton Township Trustee, Christopher Gonzalez nominated Tiffany Henyard. In a facebook video, it does not appear that the motion was seconded, but none-the-less, with nine minutes left to install a successor to Zuccarelli according to state statute, Henyard was approved by the board and sworn-in by the Thornton Township Clerk, Loretta C. Wells. It was a shocking development. Henyard was also serving as the youngest Mayor ever elected in Dolton and the first Black female Mayor as well. The same could now be said for Thornton Township. The event was historical but there were some tell-tale signs immediately that this historical moment might be the beginning of something less than wonderful. She vowed on that night to continue the work of Frank Zuccarelli in an interview with a reporter. Shortly thereafter, while the interview was going on, Deputy Supervisor, Joyce Washington joined the interview and hugged and congratulated Henyard. She was soon followed by Trustee Jerry Jones. They both demonstrated support for Henyard and shared their hopes. Jones said at the time that Henyard had the “potential to take this township to new heights”.
