WHERE I STAND ON THE ISSUES

Bringing Government To You: I held forums on appealing property tax assessments, county budgeting, county bike trails, and held open office hours in your community

Improving Government Transparency: I led the successful effort to televise all Finance Committee Meetings for your convenience.

Finances: I worked to ensure county services and finances were stable as the state floundered without a budget.

Preserving Open Space: I continue to protect and provide access to our Forest Preserves.

Mental Health Crisis: I was appointed to be Lake County’s representative on the White House’s task force to reduce recidivism and provide better resources for people living with mental illness, some of whom experience homelessness. I participated in the 2016 national Point In Time count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless people.

Opioid Epidemic: I serve on the Lake County Opioid Initiative, placing more disposal boxes to keep pharmaceuticals out of our water, landfills, and communities. We’re connecting residents with treatment providers and saving lives.
