Ballot Measure Proposition – Elect City Council at Large YES!

DuPage County Total Votes – 10,793 / Yes – 7,735   / No – 3,058

Will County Total Votes – 3,820 / Yes – 2,037 / No – 1,783

Yes At Large has proposed a referendum question stating, “Shall the city of Naperville elect city council at large instead of part of the councilmen at large and part of the councilmen from districts?”

Earlier Post

This listing includes only the candidates running to be elected for governing bodies that serve Naperville voters in the Consolidated Election on Tues., April 9. It’s getting down to the wire. Talk to friends and neighbors. Help educate and inspire informed voters to head for the polls by 7PM April 9.

Upon request, PN gladly linked up every candidate’s website to this Election Guide.

A website that is up-to-date and accessible to all around the clock is a great starting off point for all voters to get to know the individual candidates. If a candidate has no intention to create a website available 24-7  on the Internet, voters might want to question the candidate’s thoughtfulness, accountability and serious commitment to let local residents know his/her community interests, stands on issues and qualifications that will make the individual worthy to serve on one of Naperville’s governing bodies. Many of the candidates also have pages on Facebook.

Local government officials make decisions that affect every person in this community where it matters in our schools, the municipality, parks and recreation, etc. Now is the time to begin learning how and why every candidate wants to serve.

Also note that city council, school board and park district elections are nonpartisan.  Township elections slate candidates with party affiliation.

Now that all the candidate forums are completed and NCTV-17 interviews are taped, we have their links below.  Yes. It takes time to be an educated voter.

Thanks for reading, getting to know all the hopefuls and supporting the candidates of your choice with your educated vote.

Early Voting ended April 6

After nearly two weeks, Early Voting ended at noon Sat., April 6, at the Naperville Municipal Center for voters in DuPage County and Naperville residents in Will County. The tally for votes in DuPage County was 1,436 voters.  Even though the polling place looked busy with all booths filled as the clock was approaching 12-noon, April 6, that’s very low turnout for 12 days of operation.

Registered voters who take time to review the candidates will find that this campaign season features some very qualified candidates who want to serve our community on school boards and city council. It seems unfair to all the folks running that officials who predict such things think few citizens care to give the election a look, much less head for the polls as informed voters to cast ballots on Tuesday. We could go on and on. We just hope you remember that We the People need to voice our informed opinions at the ballot box.

PN POST: Judge supports decision

UPDATE: On Wed., April 3, the Appellate Court of Illinois, Second District, issued a 21-page order affirming that on Tues., April 9, 2013, Naperville voters will vote on the issue as to whether City Councilmen should be elected at large. Polls will be open from 6AM-7PM Tues., April 9, for the 2013 Consolidated Election.

Attend public forums and debates / Scroll PN’s Event Calendar for Individual Candidate Meet & Greets

Get to know every candidate’s skill set and qualifications to serve during meet and greet events featured on PN’s community calendar by request of the candidate. Be prepared to ask questions in civilized discourse and exchange of ideas. Be mindful of the impact every governing body has on your total tax property bill in Naperville. The City of Naperville  tax rate represents 11 to 13 percent of a citizen’s total tax property bill. The township, county, county forest preserve, park district, College of DuPage and school taxes (approximately 75 percent of the tax bill are school taxes) make up the rest. Decisions made locally are the ones with the biggest impact on your quality of life.

Pay attention!

If the candidates are incumbents, pay attention to their attendance and voting records. The citizens you elect will determine public policy and approve budgets. Will they serve your best interests? Do they have personal agendas? Are they one-issue candidates? What skills do the candidates bring to the governing body they want to serve?

Has the candidate served on other boards or commissions? Has the candidate shown that he/she previously has had time to volunteer and make the commitment it takes to serve? Is the candidate articulate? What are the candidate’s passions and special interests? What has attracted the candidate to want to serve now at this time in the history of this city, schools, parks, etc.?

We appreciate the time, commitment and financial obligations it takes to petition and run for elected office. That’s why we also urge all voters to talk to friends and neighbors as they become acquainted with the candidates vying to be on the ballot in the Consolidated Election on Tues., April 9.

Thanks for doing your homework early and often.  That’s the best way to make a difference with an educated vote.

Attend public forums and debates

DuPage County Voter INFO:  www.dupageco.org/election.

Will County Voter INFO:  www.thewillcountyclerk.com.

Meanwhile, hopefuls have lined up to run in DuPage and Will counties to serve City Council, School Boards 203 and 204, Naperville Park District, College of DuPage and six townships serving Naperville. Become educated about all candidates on the ballot. Meet candidates when and where they are available.

Also understand candidates can be stretched to the limits trying to meet as many registered voters as possible.  They cannot be everywhere, nor can they attend every public forum during the election season. Sometimes citizen voters have to make the decision to go the distance to meet them, even if it’s to visit their website online.

All that said, consider that your freedom to vote for the candidate of your choice includes the freedom not to vote for any or every candidate at all. Freedom to exercise the right to vote is a respected privilege, but that freedom to vote is not a duty. Still, in a city that touts its highly educated population and dedication to excellent public schools, it’s a wonder why some citizens hesitate to become informed voters in time to exercise that privilege at the polls on Election Day.

Thanks for paying attention where government matters the most—locally.
