This election will be the first time in a long time that Woodridge residents will get to choose who will lead the Village forward. It is about vision, ideas and most importantly leadership. I believe I am the only candidate that brings the necessary skills and vision to the position along with the ability to provide the necessary leadership.
This election is not about how many organizations one volunteers for or how nice a person may be. While I think I compare very favorably on those counts it takes more than that to be a successful leader.
Every organization I have been a part of has ended up better because of my involvement. Why? Because I do more than just join. I work to make sure I leave the organization or group better than we started. I end up leading. And not just in name. Take a look at my endorsements on my web site and see what other leaders say about me.
When I become involved in anything I bring new ideas and an ability to see things from different perspectives. I bring an ability to work together with differing points of view to reach consensus. I am able to incorporate other groups, organizations and individuals in ways that may not be immediately apparent to accomplish goals. I lead, and I do it from the front. I listen to the people I’m working with, look at all the information available and make a decision. Then I move forward to implement it. Perhaps most importantly I get things done.
I don’t want to sound like I do all of this on my own. A lot of work by others is required to accomplish goals and move the community forward. I’ve been fortunate to receive the help of many people as we have worked to make Woodridge a better place to call home. Working together is more than just a campaign slogan to me. It’s what I’ve always done. I have an ability to show people where we need to go and then help get there.
I want Woodridge to remain a strong and vibrant community, one that is always a great place to live, work and play in. I want it to be a place to raise your family, like I am doing. I want it to be a place where you will want to stay AFTER you’ve raised your family. I want it to be a place that the family you raised feels so strongly about Woodridge they want to raise THEIR family here. And I want it to be a place that, should you move on, you will be proud to say that you are from Woodridge. That’s why I’m running for Mayor.
