Geoff Baker brings strength to the New Leadership Party slate. I have known him as a thoughtful parent, a hard-working community member and a creative problem solver. Geoff thoughtfully engages in generating solutions to difficult issues. His experiences as an intellectual property trial attorney help him to suggest options that embrace multiple perspectives. He is inclusive and respects diversity, arriving out of his experiences as a Peace Corps Volunteer. In Oak Park, he continues to volunteer his time to many community groups I have seen him serve as a compassionate and effective President of the board of the Children's School of Oak Park and I am confident that he will serve as village trustee in the same manner. Geoff Baker's leadership as a village trustee will provide a strong yet reasoned voice in Oak Park. Please vote for Geoff Baker and the entire New Leadership Partly slate on April 5.
