If you are a newcomer, what prompted you to run for village clerk? If you're an incumbent, list your accomplishments or key initiatives in which you played a leadership role.

I have always been interested in community service and spent many wonderful years volunteering at my children's schools and with their various activities. Now that they are grown, I was looking for another way to serve the community of Mundelein. When Steve Lentz approached me about joining the Pro Mundelein slate, I felt this was the perfect opportunity. In addition, my part-time job will give me the flexibility to fulfill the duties of the village clerk position.
