I support Adam Stolberg for Highland Park City Council to complete the remaining term vacated by Paul Frank.
Before coming to this conclusion, I took the time to meet with all of the candidates for this position. We spoke of why they are running, what skills and interests that they bring and what they expect to accomplish.
It is clear that Adam is by far the most prepared for the job. His experience and qualifications match the need of the council. His hands on government experience has prepared him for the job on day one. Adam understands the responsibilities of the office better and has a clear vision of the City’s priorities, role in our community and relationship with sister governments and partners.
Adam’s leadership and voice as the former Chairman of the Plan and Design Commission of Highland Park, and as a commissioner has been balanced, effective and appreciated by resident and businesses. In this role he comprehensively and thoughtfully addresses issues regarding zoning, housing, business development, sustainability, budgetary matters, traffic and parking issues and historic preservation. Applicants often state that Adam is respectful, and takes great care to incorporate their concerns into the actions and recommendations of the Commission. He works closely with his commission colleagues, the City Council, and City staff. He has earned
their respect and that of residents and the business and development community.
We have the opportunity in Adam Stolberg, to include a life-long member of our community with known skills and the ability to do the job. If you ask whom I want sitting on the dais with me, it’s Adam Stolberg. We need his broad working knowledge and experience to contribute to the future of our City. Let’s add Adam to the team by joining me as we cast our vote for Adam Stolberg for City Council.
