Who is this woman and why should you care?

“I believe we have a chance to show that people can live in a sustainable and harmonious way in and around a living wilderness; that we can be caring stewards — not merely users and abusers of these natural resources; that the Chicago region can have both a sound economy and a healthy ecology. But we have to have leaders who can take this message to the public.”

Her name is Debra SHORE, and she’s a conservationist who is running for Metropolitan Water Reclamation Commissioner on March 21. Look who else (besides me) thinks she’s great:

IVI-IPO (Independent Voters of Illinois – Independent Precinct Organization)

Sierra Club, Illinois Chapter

The Victory Fund

Democracy for America: Evanston, Edgewater/Rogers Park,
Oak Park, Quenchers, DuPage groups

Equality Illinois

Evanston Firefighters

In the interests of full disclosure, I sent her campaign a small contribution after I became so impressed by her qualifications and her goals that I felt I had to try to help her win. (See blog posts here and here.)

Please consider joining me in supporting this worthy leader. God knows we could use a few.
