A vote for Adduci is a vote for the future

I am a 30-year resident of River Forest, residing at 1105 Lathrop Ave. I practiced governmental law at the local and state and federal level for 41 years, and I have raised my family in this community and consider us to have been privileged to enjoy the people, the education, and the many amenities that this community offers. I am committed to seeing this community preserve the many fine things it has and develop new and innovative approaches to solving problems.

Fours years ago, I supported John Rigas and the Residents for Progress slate, and I think the community has been well served. In the April 9 election, I support Cathy Adduci, based on her qualifications, her professional experience, and her demonstrated ability to come up with innovative ideas to deal with the problems of the future.

I disagree with John Rigas' statement, quoted in Dan Haley's column of Feb. 20, that Cathy's opponent has the advantage based on "…his life-long experience of living in Oak Park and River Forest."

I believe that new ideas, new solutions and new approaches are not only helpful, but required to solve the problems of the future. Candidates should be elected based on credentials, creativity, and innovation, not where they were born. Please carefully consider Cathy's record, and vote for the future.

If RF residents were to make ONE choice this election - they should consider the reasons to elect an independent like Adduci. RF is a village whose trustees hold the control. The President presents the agenda, but the trustees hold the keys. For Adduci to put her selp out as Independent - with no slate - is testament to who judgement, ideas and leadership.
