Do block out an hour of your time, this Sunday, September 25, 2010
, and go to Wilmette Village Hall at 2:00 pm
to listen to the debate
between State Representative candidates, Wilmette's own Hamilton Chang and his opponent Daniel Biss. The seat is currently held by Republican Beth Coulsen, who is retiring.
With strong educational credentials and years of experience in private industry, Chang boasts a distinguished financial background. His election would make a genuine difference in bringing financial expertise into our legislature and help our elected officials to start sorting out the financial nightmare which has developed in our State over the past few years.
I know the ladies over at the League of Women Voters are always very disappointed when the press fails to give them credit for debates they organize and sponsor, so I would like not only to mention that this debate is put on by them but also note that the League has a strong dedication to sponsoring political debates. Also: for people who are suffering from that miserable cold that seems to be making the rounds, or have another good excuse for not leaving the house, the debate will also be broadcast live on Channel 6.
