City Council Candidate: Dwight Robinson
Years ago, my wife and I settled in Lake Forest to start our family.
I’ve made it a priority to be involved in our community, to make Lake Forest better for my kids.
I’ve coached Little League. Helped in our schools.
I’m a Charter Member of our Chamber of Commerce.
I’ve served as a Kiwanis Club Board Member, been a Church Elder and I teach Sunday School.
I’m a business owner here in town.
And that’s why I’m running for City Council ‐ to make sure the City works like a business.
When I first moved here, talks had been ongoing for ten years about completing Alton Parkway into Lake Forest. More than a decade later, it was just completed.
We all know the traffic here can be crippling, but not enough is done about it.
I want to create a Traffic Commission, solely focused on improving traffic congestion.
I will work with the School District to find ways to build more classrooms and reduce class sizes, even if it takes investment from the City.
For years, I’ve been working to make Lake Forest a better place to live.
With your vote, I will continue that work on the City Council.
Tomorrow: City Council candidate Marcia Rudolph
