I enthusiastically support Cathy Adduci for River Forest village president because she is highly qualified and reflects the admirable qualities of our community. Cathy carries exceptional credentials. In nearly 30 years with Unisys, she led a national organization with hundreds of employees and a multimillion-dollar budget. A longtime board member for the Erickson Institute, Northern Illinois University and the Civic Federation, she has a charitable disposition that has compelled her to lend her exceptional skills and abilities to our community. During her time on the village board, she has demonstrated exceptional leadership, character and values consistent with our village. She is simply an exceptionally qualified candidate for local government.
My experiences with Cathy confirm that she is the impressive leader promised by her credentials. She has reached out to me regarding intergovernmental efforts to help our citizens while minimizing our tax burden. She advocated for the Early Childhood Collaboration, a position that helped District 200 to achieve unanimous support for this important initiative.
Cathy and I have discussed the financial challenges facing our village, seeking greater cooperation between our governing bodies, efforts that will be increasingly necessary for all local government bodies in these times of financial hardship for our community and our state.
I strongly urge my neighbors to assess Cathy Adduci's credentials and to support her in the upcoming election for River Forest village president.
