I am running for re-election to continue representing the hard-working people of DuPage County. I am a proud working-class union member and an active community member. Serving others has always been a passion for me, as has been evident in both my professional and personal life. As a local Firefighter/Paramedic for over 28 years I’ve seen people on their best and worst days. Whether it’s a horrible fire, vehicular accident, or medical emergency when our residents need the most help, or providing safety education to pre-schoolers, and discussing senior fire and fall safety to our older residents I am here to serve. Every day, I am in the community. I value the opportunity to keep serving DuPage County as a Board Member and fight for fair and equitable policies.
After serving 4 terms in the position of Carol Stream Village Trustee, and currently in my 2nd term as a County Board member, I am fortunate to have opportunities to speak with residents about the needs of our community. My experience and compassion in this role have allowed me to take serving our residents to a whole new level. The past few years have been hard on our community; I’ve seen the devastation firsthand in my role as a Firefighter/Paramedic and as a County Board Member. Let’s work together and ensure that we have a county board that will fight for a better future for everyone.
