The old saying goes that when you want something done, ask a busy person. That phrase rings true as I wholeheartedly endorse and support Alyssa Knobel for the Highland Park City Council.
A fifteen year resident of Highland Park, Alyssa has made the business of Highland Park her business. As chairman of the City of Highland Park’s Business and Economic Development Commission, an executive board member of the Highland Park Downtown Alliance, and as a committee member on both the Ravinia Business District Alliance Advisory and the Briergate Business Association District, Alyssa’s work helps to ensure that long-standing businesses are recognized for their commitment to our city, and that new businesses find a welcome home in Highland Park.
An energetic mother of two, Alyssa also has gained exceptional experience in a variety of volunteer positions in organizations which support children and families including the executive board of the JCYS, the League of Women Voters, the Historical Society, the NSSD112 Strategic Plan Curriculum Committee, and the PTA executive board.
I believe Alyssa’s considerable experience will mean a smooth transition to elected office – and many others agree. Current Mayor Nancy Rotering and City Council members Blumberg, Frank, and Naftzger along with Steve Mandel (now serving Lake County), endorse Alyssa.
With a collaborative style and contagious energy, Alyssa Knobel will combine a common sense approach to city government with an uncommon understanding and appreciation for our community.
Please vote for Alyssa Knobel , Tuesday, April 9.
