Simply stated, Juanta Griffin is Oak Park and I am looking forward to taking my entire family with me to the polls so we can cast our vote for her as Village Trustee. It is time for our village to come together in ways that create bridges across differences, celebrates our diversity and moves us beyond what we currently think ourselves to be as an “intentionally integrated” community. 

I have watched Juanta maximize resources, create community spaces where there were none, and drive change and support for all. She brings experience on various levels, including as a fiduciary but what sets her apart is her ability to bring people together and lead based on the needs of the people. Our village trustees need to be able to create opportunities for all, form bridges across our differences, and cultivate changes that foster a healthy community. That is what Juanta brings as a village trustee. Juanta is a builder — a community builder — with clarity and conviction for seeking real solutions toward the betterment of Oak Park. Join me in supporting her candidacy and vote by April 6.
