I would like to share my trust and support of Mr. Ray Johnson as a candidate for village trustee in the upcoming April election. As a resident of Oak Park’s Barrie Park area for 12 years and a community development planner for 25 years, practicing with JJR, LLC, I’ve personally experienced Mr. Johnson’s ability to understand individual, community and development needs, then lead successful resolutions. His personal commitment and actions will create a “welcoming environment for development through understanding neighborhood needs one individual at a time.” He is a kind, thoughtful, compassionate, attentive, talented, respectful and smart leader. I would strongly encourage all readers to meet Mr. Johnson personally and then confirm support of him and the Citizens for Progressive Action slate in the upcoming April election.
