I will seek to expand open lands and free access to the lake front
For example, I will fight for our residents who pay taxes to support the Park District but do not have the disposable income to join The Rec Center or Deer Creek but who deserve beautiful FREE areas in our community
I will be a vigilant steward of the lands which make Highland Park unique
For example, I will promise to not put any playing fields on the Highland Park Golf Course. I will reject any proposal to close Park Ave. beach
I will use the powers of my position to help Dist. 112 overcome their challenges
For example, I will sit at the table with our sister governmental agencies and listen to the needs of our residents to try to find a solution to the 112 issue
I will always listen more than I talk.
For example, I will try to create an active stakeholder task force in order to provide the Board with quality and timely feedback
I will be fiscally responsible with the dollars put aside for your Park District
Of course I am a resident of Highland Park as well and I would not want my tax dollars wasted. I support maintaining the facilities that we run now before expanding our reach into new areas.
As a lover of the outdoors and an active member of our community, I envision a city filled with recreational and ecological opportunities for our residents of all ages, income and ability levels. Bustling with recreational activity, I see the people of Highland Park becoming the best versions of themselves - healthy and teeming with energy - ready to meet the challenges of 21st Century living.
