PLEASE VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6!
*Everyone* in our county deserves representation on our Board. Paula Rossow can work effectively with Republicans while focusing on important Democratic values and goals.
Rossow's priorities are: improving middle-class families' access to resources, maintaining and improving infrastructure, and supporting economic development for our region.
Paula Rossow and her husband, John "Jack" McCadden, have been residents of the Village of Loda for six years. She received a Master's Degree in Sociology from Northwestern University (1987).
Rossow was a Trustee with the Loda Sanitary District Board from July 2016 to April 2018, and she has been active in many Loda activities and projects.
In the course of Loda Sanitary Board business, I attended many County Board meetings (as well as Policy & Procedure Committee meetings), and I found it fascinating. I had no preconceived notions, just sheer curiosity and interest. The Who-What-When-Why of county-level decision-making affects us all and requires hard work and attentiveness, not people on "automatic pilot."
I am consistently impressed with the many, many people in Iroquois County who donate so much of their time to "give back" to their communities and the county as a whole. Residents volunteer with FFA, Peace Meals, the County Fair, food pantries, emergency assistance, clubs/organizations focusing on charitable efforts, literacy projects, village clean-ups, and so much more. This is a county to be proud of, and I will be proud to work for all of you.
Representing YOUR concerns, hopes, needs, and opinions should always be "job one" for County Board members, and that is exactly my goal. Action is vital but *listening* lays the groundwork for action.
Researching the details involved in decisions --not partisanship-- is key. Board members must keep the best interest of the county in mind while also attentive to their district's specific issues.
