Are there going to be any more Q&A sessions with any of the candidates running for either D97, D200, or Trustees coming up before Election Day?

The immutable fact of Village governance is that there is miniscule room for discretionary spending. Labor contracts, pension funding, and bond debt incurred by previous boards make up the vast majority of the Village budget. Those of us interested in influencing the board on particular issues need to recognize this. Candidates understandably are passionate about certain issues. If elected, they will find their hands tied in trying to deliver on their campaign promises. What we need are sober-minded trustees with open minds, and a willingness to learn about how to govern. As responsible citizens, we have to be willing to do the hard work of not just voting at election time, not just complaining about what the people who represent us for little or no pay do or do not do, but also doing the yeoman's work of making our interests and needs clear to staff and board throughout the year. Year in and year out. And giving them time and space to do the best they can for us. Again, for little or no pay.
