It’s Time to Vote

All politics are local, and we who live in Illinois have an election coming up on March 17. I am offering my endorsement for Cameron Davis who is running for a six-year term as a commissioner on the board of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago. (See the Chicago Tribune endorsement for details on Cam and the MWRD.)

This may seem like an obscure post, but it is critical for the safety of our drinking water, flood control and sewage management, among many other issues. Cam Davis has a proven track record of getting great things done for our water and the community. Join me in voting for Cam and the other Tribune-endorsed candidates on March 17!
