Dear friends and neighbors,
For me, running for alderman is the culmination of two decades of community involvement and professional development. I've prepared for this job and timed it in my life. I've taken leadership classes and have flexible hours from my employer. I've run a political organization and I have a public record as trustee of a property tax district.
Tonight, you will hear a lot about experience and qualifications, opinions and ideas. I would like to take this time to talk about what “Evanston resident since 1986” means.
