How does one measure commitment? What do you want to know when you decide who to vote for as the next Mayor of Woodridge? Is it by how long someone has lived in a community? Is there some way to measure the love one has for their town? Perhaps you can look at the commitment that has already been shown. Perhaps you can look at who other leaders in the Village turn to when looking for someone to help out, to keep commitments and to provide leadership.
I’ve been talking about many of the ways I’ve helped to make Woodridge a better place for all of us. You can find it here in my blog posts or you can go to my web site - http://www.mikekrucek4mayor.com/about. You can see what I mean by commitment.
There are reasons Mayor Murphy asked me and my co-chair, Mary Ann Frank, to head up the 50/40 anniversary committee celebrating milestones reached by the Village and Park District. Mary Ann is now a member of my campaign team.
There are reasons I was asked to be a part of the Steering Committee when Woodridge updated its comprehensive plan in 2006.
There are reasons I was asked to become a trustee on the Woodridge Police Pension Board.
There are reasons I was asked to be part of the School District 68 Committee that interviewed applicants for their new position, Director of Community Engagement. I represented both the business community and the community at large, the only person on the committee not a part of the district.
There are reasons I have been asked back to coach the girl’s softball program even though I no longer have a daughter in the program.
There are reasons teachers ask for me to return every year to teach their Junior Achievement class.
There are reasons that people who have worked with me in various projects within the Village are supporting my run for Mayor.
There are reasons I’m asked to be part of many of the things that go on in Woodridge. I believe one of the primary reasons is commitment. People know they can expect a total commitment from me when I say I’ll do it. They know I do what I say I’m going to do. They know I’ll stick with it until we get the job done. They know I’m capable of leading and they know everything I do will be in the best interest of the organization; the best interest of Woodridge. They know I stick to my commitments. And now I want to bring that same commitment to village government as your next Mayor.
