What is the primary reason you are running for this office?
Wheaton needs to be more competitive with other towns in DuPage County. Wheaton should be the destination for young couples and families looking to move out of the City, for local visitors looking to shop, dine, or be entertained, and for businesses looking to start-up or expand. We also need to remain attractive to empty-nesters and local retirees.
