I have worked with the public in public funded institutions for over 20 years. I do consulting for small village libraries and know how tight budgets are and need to be spent carefully. I lived in Fox River Grove and now Wonder Lake and have a deep appreciation for how small communities stand by their schools, libraries and other institutions. Wonder Lake is our home, I care deeply about the residents and most especially the children, wanting them to have every possible educational advantage but yet make sure that every dollar is spent carefully for their benefit.
Though I have never been an elected official, I have lived in Wonder Lake most of my life. And two of my children have attended school at Harrison. I am a community member and a parent. I see what happens in the school, and feel the effects in our community.
