The Daily Herald Editorial Board

Debra Shore, of Evanston, seems perfectly suited to be a member of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District board. She demonstrates knowledge about the issues confronting the district, comes with bona fide conservation experience and credentials and also appears judicious and measured about what is possible for the district to tackle. She is strongly endorsed.

With the focus on stormwater, conservation and invasive species, sometimes it's difficult to remember that the district is also a large employer as well. That was brought home by the costs and lawsuit arising from the way the district's severance policy was changed. The legal experience of Patrick Thompson, of Chicago, should serve the board well in that regard, and he is endorsed.

Both incumbent Patricia Horton, of Chicago, and former board member Patricia Young, of Waukegan, have a great deal of knowledge and experience about the district and its history. As useful as that knowledge and experience is, the district is also a large landowner in the state. Stella Black's experience as an assessor and her interest in government transparency would benefit the board. She also demonstrates an avid interest in conservation issues through her involvement with various civic organizations. Black, of Chicago, is endorsed. Also seeking the Democratic nomination is Kari Steele, of Chicago.
