There are a number of top-notch candidates vying for the River Forest Board of Trustees. Among the best is Erika Bachner. She is an energetic community activist, and has practical work skills which will be of use to our village.

I support Erika's candidacy because she is a born leader who is particularly skilled at listening to residents and involving them in community activities. At Willard School, she served on the PTO executive board and is currently chair of Roosevelt Middle School's IM Pack-Parent Enrichment Committee. She has also organized coalitions of locals to do registration drives, and has led efforts to improve the rights of women, immigrants, and the disabled.

For many years Erika has worked in investment banking and real estate M&A. This work experience will enhance the village's efforts to bring economic development to North Avenue and Madison Street. In doing so, she is particularly sensitive to efforts not to undermine neighborhoods, or permanently removing residents who live around the TIF areas.

Erika's energy, leadership abilities, and practical skills will make her a welcome addition to the River Forest Board of Trustees.
