I have made Morton Grove my home since my parents moved here in 1950. I love Morton Grove. My late husband Jim and I raised our 7 children here and now 5 of my grandchildren call Morton Grove home.
I have served on the Morton Grove Park District Board for over 30 years. I have worked with many elected officials, on the Park Board, the Village Board and at the township, county and state level. The good ones listen to the residents, put the people’s interests above politics and work with everyone for our common good. Morton Grove needs a mayor with those qualities, and that’s why I am endorsing Dan DiMaria.
I have known Dan DiMaria for over 15 years. Dan and his wife of 22 years Melodee are devoted to their four daughters and one son. He has faced tough challenges with a positive attitude that reassures and motivates those around him. He is compassionate, experienced, smart and energetic. But most of all, he puts people and families first.
Lately, Village budget cuts have resulted in reduced services that have hurt many residents, especially seniors. Dan understands the need to maintain and improve services without further burdening taxpayers. He will work with our Park District, School Board, Library Board and local leaders to share and reduce expenses, and to promote our wonderful village to potential new businesses. I’m voting for Dan DiMaria on February 26 and I hope you will too.
