I am pleased that Jim Taglia decided to run for Oak Park village trustee. Jim provided outstanding service as an Oak Park Township trustee, 2011-17, during my tenure as the elected township supervisor. My experience is that Jim:
Was always well prepared for board meetings,
Served as the most informed member on financial matters,
Was the most vocal on the general need for property tax restraint, and
Was always a voice of reason and consensus building.
Jim deeply believed in the human services mission of the township. A particularly notable example was his strong advocacy for Narcan availability for opioid overdose, helping convince the village to require that police carry it for life-saving use.
Now as a sitting village trustee in the larger arena of village-wide issues, Jim has maintained his record of strong preparation, openness to diverse views, and well-reasoned decision-making for the overall good of the village.
My wife, Mena, and I highly recommend him for your vote on April 2.
