Local Elections April 6, 2021
Do you know the people in charge of putting your tax money to use? April Municipal elections are a great time to get to know some of them. They are the easiest elected officials to personally get time with because they represent so many fewer residents than the elected officials in the national news. These officials are your neighbors and part of social circles in your community.
This April 6th, we'll vote for our representatives on many local boards including Township administrations, village/city/town councils, school boards, library boards, and fire protection district boards. They are in charge of maintaining most of the roads we use, maintaining sewers and water lines, employing police and fire fighters, overseeing our community schools, determining what books and policies our public libraries follow, preparedness at the fire departments we rely on, and much much more.
Plan to attend some or all of our meetings ahead of the April 6th election to hear from candidates directly. Meetings are conveniently held on Zoom, so grab your favorite evening beverage and your notepad as you listen to candidates describe why they deserve your vote and what they hope to do if elected. Tentative meeting dates are February 18th, March , and March (click on underlined dates to go to the Facebook event listings). All meetings start at 6:30 PM and run approximately 90 minutes.

Did you know that 30% of the 614,752 registered voters in DuPage county didn't vote in the 2016 presidential election? That more than twice that many didn't vote in the 2016 primary election? Did it matter? Ask the 14th Congressional District candidate who lost DuPage by three votes! Every vote counts, which is why you've got to get involved.
Your Representatives in Washington
Democrats were elected in historic numbers because your parents' Republican party is gone
Did you know that Theodore Roosevelt founded the National Park System, Richard Nixon created the EPA, Ronald Reagan legalized four million immigrants, and George Bush gave us Medicare drug coverage?
In an appearance at Benedictine University in Lisle, longtime Wisconsin talk show host Charlie Sykes decried how the party of "family values" had come to embrace a man like Donald Trump.
The author of How the Right Lost Its Mind was particularly scornful of politicians who abandon their principles and enable a President who seems at odds with everything the Party of Lincoln once stood for.
