New direction needed in county

Success - Article sent! close

With so many important races this election season, it is so easy to forget a race that affects us here at home more than any other race this year: our Lake County Board race.

Here in Highland Park, we live in the 23rd District, where Carl Marcyan is running against incumbent Anne Bassi. She had eight years to show leadership on our behalf and yet all we received was campaign promises. Property taxes rise despite plummeting home values, jobs are fleeing our county, and we still have no resolution to the Fort Sheridan Golf Course issue. It is clear we need to move in a new direction.

That is why my husband Don and I are supporting Carl Marcyan. We are sick of political people who make empty promises. We want action and we are ready for new leadership. Carl Marcyan will provide that, and we urge your readers to take a look at his campaign.
