Background Information

-My name is Nancy Thompson and I am seeking the office of 7th Ward Alderman in the City of Blue Island. I am a longtime resident of Blue Island, and I currently reside at 11956 Longwood Drive.

Contact Information: Anyone wishing to contact me can do so by email at: nancycake1@aol.com.

Education: I received an Associate’s Degree in Music and was a certified Case Manager for the State of Illinois.

Family: I am the proud mother of two sons and grandmother to two wonderful grandchildren.

In your view, what are the two most important issues facing your constituents? How would address those issues?

-One of the biggest issues facing the Blue Island community is our faulty budget. I believe that with hard work and collaboration our city can regain fiscal stability. As alderman, I would work with my colleagues to create and adhere to a workable city budget. A second issue facing our community is the building of a garbage incinerator in the 7th Ward. As alderman, I will block any attempts to build this incinerator in our neighborhoods.

Please explain something significant you would like to accomplish within the next two years if you are elected to the office to which you aspire.

-Over the next two years, I would like to improve the City’s infrastructure. It is important that we exercise fiscal responsibility and invest in the improvement of our roadways, bridges, and sidewalks. Additionally, I would like to work towards the beautification of neighborhoods throughout the City. f

-As an alderman, I will aim to create new jobs for Blue Island residents as the City improves its infrastructure. As we beautify our city and enhance our infrastructure more job opportunities will be available in our community.
