Roger Claar is the mayor of Bolingbrook. He was the mayor when Kathleen Savio was killed and he was the mayor when Stacy Peterson disappeared. He was also the mayor when Drew Peterson was romantically involved with 17-year-old then-Stacy Cales, but did not discipline Peterson for his under-18 adulterous affair. Claar said Peterson never visited his home in anything other than a professional capacity. Peterson contradicted this, saying he went to the Claars' for Christmas parties.
