When considering the qualities a leader should possess, integrity, thoughtfulness, vision, rigor, and empathy rise to the top. It is readily apparent that Patty Henek possesses all of these qualities throughout all of my interactions with her.

It became clear to me throughout the planned development process for the Harlem & Chicago senior living facility that Patty utilizes a comprehensive set of metrics to assess the pros and cons of a particular decision, rather than just relying on simplistic analysis/gut instinct. It is evident from the questions she asks and the way she communicates that she weighs the relevant factors before coming to a well-considered conclusion.

Patty’s approach is a breath of fresh air and I am happy to support her candidacy for Village President, as I feel that she will expand on the transparency, fairness, and supportive nature of village government.
