Over the years, Judith Alexander has been a driving force for the development of North Avenue. Her love of community, and her unflinching willingness to confront issues that concern citizens, is impressive. It is my hope that she will consider running for village president when the current president’s second term ends.
Alexander would provide focused leadership to build North Avenue, and in my opinion, do the same for all business corridors. She has built relationships with leaders in Chicago, and elsewhere, that would benefit Oak Park.
I strongly urge Ms. Alexander to make the race and I call in all who know her and her work to ask her to run.
