Karen Spillers: Great Choice for Wilmette Trustee

Good news! Karen Spillers has declared for Wilmette Village Trustee. Wilmette didn't endorse her candidacy last time around--at that time I had never met Karen, and unfortunately her literature didn't give me reason enough to vote for her.

Since the last election--which she lost by just a handful of votes--I have gotten acquainted with Karen. She is energetic, enthusiastic, and results oriented. Karen Spillers would make make an excellent trustee.

In good hands these are excellent qualities, but in bad hands it just makes matters worse.

Could you tell us about Karen's political leanings?

Agreed, Gale, a link to a questionnaire: is here. One of her key viewpoints is "It is important that we maintain the character of our community and the basic reasons we chose to live here." That's important to me.

I am hoping people will be formulating their "political" questions for this campaign. Political parties don't seem to tell us much about what kind of a trustee someone will be. There are so many instances over the years when Democrats and Republicans have been in total agreement on local issues. We need to come up with a formula that will tell us more about how candidates will vote on a variety of issues once they are elected. I am not so good at formulating those questions. If you have some ideas, can you pass them along?
