Downers Grove Community Advocates Endorse Candidates for Village Council and Park Board
The Downers Grove Community Advocates are pleased to announce their endorsements of Downers Grove Village Council and the Downers Grove Park Board candidates in the April 5th election.
At a forum on February 26, held at Downers Grove Fire Station #2, 5420 Main Street, each candidate was given the opportunity to make a brief presentation and then participated in a question and answer session followed by a closing statement. All candidates were asked the same questions in the same order and were allotted the same time.
In addition, candidates submitted answers to a brief questionnaire prior to the forum. The DGCA's decision to endorse these candidates was based on the responses to the questions asked, both written and verbal. Factoring in to the decision was the experience and knowledge DGCA members have of current and historical village issues. It is the policy of the DGCA to endorse for the number of positions available.
The Downers Grove Community Advocates exist to reach out and to work positively for the best of our community. The DGCA was founded in 2004 by members whose combined community service totals over 463 years as elected officials, board and committee members and volunteers in local organizations. We conduct a thorough process including questionnaires, written statements and public interviews. The longevity, diversity and range of our service demonstrate our longstanding, unwavering commitment to the community.
