An important election for the Village of Mundelein will take place on April 9 to decide who will be Mundelein's next mayor. The independent candidates for mayor are Wally Frasier and Robin Meier. Also on the ballot for mayor is Steve Lentz, the head of a political party called Promundelein. I want to tell you why it is my hope that Wally Frasier will be elected as the next mayor of the Village of Mundelein.
Wally and Wendy Frasier have raised their family and lived in Mundelein for more than 40 years. The Frasiers have served their community in countless volunteer positions. Presently Wally is the commander of our local veterans organization, he is chairman of the Mundelein Police Pension Board and serves on the Mundelein Park and Recreational District Board, of which he has presided as president for many years.
It is not Frasier's past that leads me to recommend him to you to be Mundelein's next mayor. I know Mundelein is at a crossroad in regard to taking the right steps to becoming a better place to work, raise a family and own a home. With those goals in mind, Mundelein needs a mayor who will reach out as its ambassador to businesses, community groups, schools and homeowner organizations in order to create an environment in which everyone pulls on the same rope to progress.
Mundelein needs a mayor who has a proven commitment to lowering the cost of government and to finding ways of attracting new businesses in order to strengthen our tax base in the hope of lower tax bills.
Also, Mundelein needs a mayor who will be independent and not bound by the constraints of a local political party while fostering the business of our village.
Overall, Mundelein residents need a mayor who has the time, knowledge and commitment to make the wishes for their town a reality.
I know Wally Frasier will be that mayor for Mundelein. He is the right choice at the right time. I hope he will be Mundelein's choice to be its next mayor.
