I’m running for Village Trustee because we need to have new voices on the Arlington Heights Village Board. I bring a different set of experiences than the other candidates in this race. Not only do I have experience in finance and budget management, but I have volunteered hands-on in our local schools, my church and numerous nonprofits for the last 14 years. I have raised a family in Arlington Heights since 2005 and I want the Village Board to do more to address the urgent issue of climate change. There’s a lot we can do on the local level. Arlington Heights should be a more diverse, equitable, and welcoming community. We can accomplish this by making sure that Arlington Heights remains an affordable, family-friendly community for our children and seniors alike.
