WINZ FOR LISLE TOWNSHIP HIGHWAY COMMISSIONER

I can think no finer candidate for Lisle Township Commissioner than Stephen Winz. Steve is a lifelong resident of Lisle and is deeply rooted in the community
I have known Steve for a few short years. Over those years I have known Steve to be committed to his family and friends and has passion to serve the community.
Steve’s experience as an Operating Engineer for Local 150 gives him the unique tools and experience to be the next Highway Commissioner for Lisle Township
I hope you will join  me on March 2nd for Steve’s fundraiser and in casting your vote for Steve on April 4th!

Kawasaki Disease is a serious illness that causes inflammation in the coronary artery wall. If left unrecognized and untreated, it could cause serious damage to the heart. Highly effective treatment for Kawasaki Disease is available.

 

Without treatment, about 25% of children develop heart disease involving the coronary arteries. Timely diagnosis and treatment (which usually includes intravenous gamma globulin) is highly effective in preventing coronary complications.

WANT TO MAKE A CHANGE IN 2017? FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TO SERVE AS AN APPOINTED OFFICIAL!

 

“If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself.” President Barack Obama

Running for office is a great way to have a say in government and make change. However, running for office is not the only option. Another way to have a say and make change is to seek an appointment to a board or commission. Appointments are made at the local, county and state levels.

DuPage County is home to some 40 different boards and commissions. There are opportunities to serve on the Regional Transportation Board, Zoning Board, Water Commission and the Historical Museum to name a few. Generally, the Chairman of DuPage County makes the appointments to various boards and commissions with the advice and consent of the DuPage County Board Members. Many of the boards and commissions lack women and minority representation.

I would encourage anyone that wants to make a difference in 2017 to please fill out an application to serve on a board or commission.

For your convenience I have attached a copy of the link to the various boards and commissions here.

A copy of the application can be found here.
