I strongly endorse KATHRYN CIESLA, MURIEL COLLISON, and JASON HAN for Northbrook Village Trustee. I urge you to vote for each one of them. Make your vote count!
As your Village President, I consistently reach out to the community asking for people to get involved in our various Commissions. It is a responsibility I take seriously… finding and educating the next generation of leaders.
I encourage them to go through the rigorous process of being vetted by the Caucus, 80 of your neighbors and friends, who interview potential candidates before a final endorsement is made at a Town Meeting where everyone in the community is invited to participate. I look for independent, thoughtful, principled, and ethical individuals. And I have found that in my fellow candidates!
I asked KATHRYN CIESLA to run 8 years ago and she has proven herself in her dedication to detail, to knowing the facts, to creative problem solving.
We need her on the Village Board for those reasons, as well as her financial acumen and her emphasis on communication and transparency. She lives on the east side of town. MURIEL COLLISON was born and raised in Northbrook. I nominated her for the Plan Commission because of her knowledge of and commitment to our community. She always considers all sides of an issue and takes a very balanced approach to making a decision. We need her on the Village Board for her thorough understanding of zoning and her ability to look beyond the easy choices to clearly define what is best for Northbrook.
She lives in the center of town. I asked JASON HAN to consider running after I saw how active and thoughtful he was on the Community Relations Commission, especially in his work with the Celebration of Cultures. We need his perspective, cultural diversity, and emphasis on sustainability. He will be an asset to the Board. He lives on the south side of town.
This is the type of diversity we need on the Village Board – the diversity of location, the diversity of experience, the diversity of thought. These are the type of people we need on the Village Board – ones who can disagree without being disagreeable, discuss difficult issues while maintaining civility.
KATHRYN CIESLA, MURIEL COLLISON and JASON HAN are the candidates for Village Trustee who will best serve Northbrook. Each will get my vote. Each deserves yours.
