I’m running for Mt. Prospect Village Board because I want to ensure we have a local government that listens, respects everyone's opinion, and responds to the needs of the whole community. We deserve a government that's transparent, that takes citizen input seriously, and invests the time needed to make thoughtful, well-informed decisions.

I’ve been an active participant in many important issues affecting our community and these experiences have provided me with an in-depth understanding of past successes and future challenges. I’m committed to Mount Prospect—I own a home here and have chosen to raise my children in this community. My professional background as a CPA, with extensive experience in real estate development and private business, makes me a well-qualified candidate to carefully and thoughtfully participate in decisions that come before the board.

 Top priorities for which I will advocate if elected: 

  • I’d like to see the Community Relations Commission reactivated or a new commission established to concentrate on community engagement and citizen outreach to our diverse population.
  • I want to ensure we’re taking a strategic view on all real estate development decisions. It’s important that we look at the big picture, and that means carefully considering the impact of new development on the character of our community, the quality of our schools, and the health of our environment.
  • I want to be part of new, creative thinking regarding how the village shares important information with residents and collaborates with other units of government. We need to think outside the box and find ways to promote transparency, which will, in turn, help residents become more engaged in the decisions affecting their community.

This campaign is 100% volunteer based, we have no paid help. Your contributions will be used to buy yard signs, walk cards and send postcards to voters. 

A copy of our report filed with the State Board of Elections is (or will be) available on the Board’s official website (www.elections.il.gov) or for purchase from the State Board of Elections, Springfield, Illinois.

    “Yulia has a clear desire to serve Mt Prospect, as well as a passion for reaching out to and engaging the community. Over the years, she has demonstrated her heart for MP by organizing a slew of volunteer efforts -- from sorting donations for the Fire Department's Toy Drive to assembling backpacks for the Human Services Department to soliciting volunteers for the inaugural Celebration of Cultures. She's extremely knowledgable, thoughtful, and perceptive. I love our village and would be proud to have Yulia as a Trustee.”

    “Yulia will make a great trustee because she studies the facts, asks questions and makes the effort to understand how others are impacted by decisions. Most importantly, she helps to educate others in the community about what's happening in our local government and engage them in the process.”
