Since the early 1990s, I have been involved in local politics. I have served on a number of former State Senator Cullerton's commissions, served as Chair of the Villa Park Fun Commission, Chief Steward for SEIU 73, Chair of York Township Democratic Organization, and on the Leadership Team of the Democratic Women of DuPage County. Although now retired, I remain a member of the SEIU 73 political committee. I am also an elected Democratic Precinct Committeewoman, an appointed Villa Park Senior Committee Trustee, Vice President of the Sistrhood of Etz Chaim Congregation, and currently the Treasurer of the Diane Blair Sherlock for State Representative District 46 Committee. When I have a moment, I enjoy Pilates, power walking, political campaigning and my dear little retirement dog.
