I feel confident in saying that my commitment to the youth of Woodridge is unsurpassed among mayoral candidates. The formation of the Woodridge Youth Commission is one of the ways I plan on continuing that commitment in the future. You can get a look at the Youth Commission here - http://www.mikekrucek4mayor.com/plans.
To get a true measure of my commitment to our kids here are some highlights of what I’ve already worked on.
Initiated, planned and organized the first Career Day at Jefferson Jr. High, continuing to run it successfully for 9 years in a row.
Participating in Junior Achievement classes in School District 68, teaching as many as ten per year.
Coached girl’s softball in the Woodridge Park District for the past 7 years.
Along with the above I’ve volunteered on many occasions over the years at District 68 Schools, Downers Grove South, the Seven Bridges Children’s Fun Run and more. This time spent actively involved in the schools has helped to give me a great working relationship with our school districts, a relationship that I will use to make sure we work together to lower taxes and work more efficiently. I also look forward to establishing the same relationship with the other school districts that serve Woodridge.
As always I look forward to any comments or questions.
