Bachner and Brennan for River Forest trustee

As the April 2 election fast approaches, let's remember how important it is to elect village trustees who are always well prepared and thoughtful in their decision-making.

This election, River Forest is privileged to have two candidates — Erika Bachner and Katie Brennan — with that in common: They thoughtfully evaluate issues rather than make knee-jerk reactions or adhere to rigid political ideology. They dig for the facts, have been well prepared when they've served on public committees, and make fact-based decisions.

Erika and Katie will bring diverse viewpoints to the River Forest Village Board that are more representative of the village as a whole. While they don't agree on everything, they certainly are the best candidates to replace the two thoughtful and well-prepared trustees, Sue Conti and Carmella Corsini, who did not seek re-election.
