Through theÂ 2015 Justice Project: The March Continues, a non-partisan north suburban campaign for just and inclusive suburbs launched by Open Communities, we distributed a Candidate Questionnaire to all candidates running in theÂ April 7thÂ election for village boards or city councils.
This Questionnaire explores the thoughts of elected officials and candidates in our north suburban service area about community inclusion and diversity. We also shared with all 53 officials/candidates ourÂ Principles for the Welcoming Community. Twelve of 53 sent us their responses.
Please share the questionnaireÂ with your family, friends and social network using the hashtag #Welcoming2All.Â And please carefully review the responses (or lack thereof) of your own candidates and elected officials, and hold accountable those who did not take the time to respond. Please tell them it is important for everyone who represents us to consider these issues and let their constituents know where they stand!
For more information about voting locations and early voting prior toÂ April 7,Â visit theÂ Cook Cook Clerk website.
