I want to take the opportunity to thank the River Forest community for its support in the recent election for village trustee. I'm humbled by the votes and engagement of residents who gave their time, energy, talents and financial support during this election. (My first since high school!)

I've had the privilege of meeting so many people, including other candidates, during the campaign. Thank you to my friends and neighbors who hosted Meet & Greets. I'm grateful to other candidates who invited me to join in and also speak at events that were initially hosted just for them. Many people came, listened, and asked hard questions. Thank you for your commitment to citizenship — you all made us better candidates.

Running for office takes a lot out of you. I absolutely could not have done it without all of the help. One amazing supporter logged 42,582 steps in one day, delivering my door hangers. And then she went back out again the next day! Another broke a hammer "pre-drilling" holes for yard signs in our frozen lawns. Another sprinkled her fairy dust and made my campaign logo and hangtags effective … and surprisingly attractive! I could go on and on.

I'm very grateful, and committed to continuing the forward progress in our community. I look forward to the challenges ahead and am honored to serve as one of River Forest's new village trustees.

River Forest village trustee-elect
