City Council Candidate Statement: Adam Nick

Each City Council candidate's statement will appear on the November ballot.

Editor's note: Patch is publishing one candidate statement each day. This is the statement voters will see on the ballot in November. Order of publication is determined by the order in which candidate names will appear on the ballot.

City Council Candidate: Adam Nick

I believe the next generation of leaders in Lake Forest must have the necessary experience, courage, and vision to create policies that  protect and uphold our values, quality of life, and strengthen the community. 

As a Councilman, I will work to  bring greater independence, increased accountability, and eliminate wasteful spending at City Hall. 

I will implement new safeguards  that assure transparency in our government, develop pro-growth policies that support our local businesses, and eliminate influences from special interest groups. 

I will take preventive measures against crime such as provide public safety officials the resources needed to protect our community, partnerships with our local school systems, and youth education. 

I will also take measures to improve our roads and traffic. 

An accountant by trade, I will be a stalwart budget hawk for the taxpayers of Lake Forest and will work to establish a leaner, more responsible City government. 

My campaign for public office is coupled with my aspiration to serve my community, and a desire to give back to the country, which has given so much to me. 

Together we can make Lake Forest a vibrant and prosperous community where its citizens are truly proud to live, work, and raise their families.

In review of other candidate statements, I see where Lionel M asked the following questions of all candidates but you. Please allow us the same answers as were asked of the others: Excuse the personal nature of these quesions, but since you are running for public office I feel we are entitled to ask. Have you ever declared bankruptcy? Has a business you owned or managed ever declared bankruptcy? Have you ever been arrested? Have you ever been convicted of a crime? Are you currently involved in any lawsuit as a defendant or plaintiff? If the answer is "yes" to any of these questions, could you please supply more information.

Mr. Nick: have you stopped listening or do you just refuse to reply?
LakeForest Lifer October 29, 2012 at 11:07 PM
Mr. Nick, Is there a reason you are not responding to my inquiry? I see you writing on other parts of Patch but you do not respond here to these questons.

Thank goodness sensibility reigns. And just to add a little to the incessant rants of those that have asked questions that smack of "racism" I am disgusted. So, when it comes to the future council race, remember Kathryn Mc Cullough who lost her co council in this election. It has been interesting that when people comment about Mr Nicks lawsuit they forget that McCullogh sued Herzog. So, let's be fair...all sitting council members who have served again over years should be voted out! Who's next?

You seem bitter. Stop bashing our council. If you have lived here 30 years, you know the difficulties faced under County control and the tremendous non-aviation efforts pre 1991. LF is solvent and has been led in a very sensible and frugal manner, cleaning up after poor/no county planning. Ground has broken for the Sports/Youth Facilities and plans for a state of the art Civic/Community Center have begun. We have 3 wonderful hospitals in the area. I hope you aspire to move forward in the best long-term interest of the whole community. Good luck with the dog park.
