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.
