County board needs savvy budgeting skills

Success - Article sent! close

Terri Voss is clearly the best choice to represent the 10th District (Hawthorn Woods and Mundelein) on the Lake County Board. As mayor of Mundelein and a former village trustee, I've worked closely with Terri Voss and can attest to her dedication and commitment to our community. As an 11-year veteran on our village board, she has clearly distinguished herself as an elected official and deserves a promotion to the Lake County Board.

Trustee Voss was instrumental in negotiating Mundelein's new downtown redevelopment that included the 10-acre Sigma site purchase and the subsequent innovative private-public partnership with Weston Solutions Inc. to create a new village hall without raising taxes. The countless hours she spent on this project went far above and beyond the expectations on any trustee in service to the village. Her savvy at the negotiating table will positively impact our community for generations.

In addition, Trustee Voss has never voted for a planned budget deficit. During the very lean years after 2008, she constantly advocated for more and more municipal budget cuts. She will be a loud voice for fiscal conservatism on the Lake County Board. That's something government needs right now.

More than anything, however, I like Terri Voss for this position because I trust her motives. She's not in this race to impress rich friends or party officials. She is a plain-spoken, tough individual who does what she says she is going to do and she will, first and foremost, ardently represent the interests of those of us who live in the 10th District.

Please join me in supporting Terri Voss as our next 10th District representative on the Lake County Board.

Steve Lentz

Village President
