We have been impressed with Christian Harris and his dedication to our community ever since we met him at a meeting of the Oak Park Homelessness Coalition several years ago. Christian is a thoughtful, engaged listener and speaker and has been involved in many organizations, committees and boards throughout the village since moving back after college in 2009.
We supported his candidacy for the Oak Park Library Board several years ago and are now supporting him for trustee for the Oak Park Village Board. He would bring to the village board new perspectives — those of a young person, an African American, a renter, and a business owner.
As a member and treasurer of the North Avenue business district, he believes in working hard to grow businesses, supports affordable housing, and is dedicated to curbing our ever-growing taxes. Christian is a lifelong Oak Parker who realizes that Oak Park is what it is today because of the efforts of many over the years. He wants to continue this legacy and is dedicated to keeping Oak Park a community that works for everyone.
His campaign slogan is “All in for Oak Park!” and he is that — willing to work for all. We will be voting for Christian Harris for Oak Park Village Trustee, and we hope you will do the same.
