Highland Park City Council elections are coming up on April 9th, and I hope that all of my friends and neighbors take the time to vote for the unequivocal BEST candidate - Alyssa Knobel!! I am awed by how deeply Alyssa cares about our community and by how much constructive time she has devoted to enrich and improve the lives of the residents. Alyssa utilizes her keen intellect, professional marketing skills and strategic, results-driven approach to strengthen HP through her active roles in various organizations ranging from Chair of the HP Business & Economic Development Commission to Board Member of the HP Historical Society. Alyssa has focused on the special character of each of HP’s unique business districts, including downtown, Ravinia and Briergate, to develop carefully tailored strategic initiatives that promote economic growth within each area while ensuring that existing shops and restaurants flourish. Alyssa approaches issues in a collaborative manner with an effort to respect and balance the needs of HP’s diverse constituencies. When I am walking my puppies along the lake, listening to live music at Vibe or shopping at E-Street, I rarely think of the people behind the scenes working tirelessly to create a wonderful community for us and our families; but when it is time for local elections, we should all remember that Alyssa Knobel is one of those people. We will all benefit from the skills, vision and passion that Alyssa Knobel will bring to the HP City Council.
