I am excited to announce today that I am running for re-election to the Lake County Board! Throughout the past three years representing District 15 on the Lake County Board, I have been incredibly proud of the thoughtful and responsible work we have done on behalf of our communities. I have been thrilled to call the 15th District home for the past 18 years.
During my time on the Lake County Board, we have held the line on property taxes, made historic investments in our county’s infrastructure, and implemented a robust response, helping our communities remain resilient and safe from the pandemic. As an economist and an educator, I have worked across the aisle to develop fiscally responsible and sustainable solutions for our community. I look forward to continuing this work to benefit my community and those throughout Lake County as the representative from District 15.

The Lake County Board voted to require vendors applying for County contracts to disclose campaign donations to Board Members of if they are a close family member of a Board member.
“This is one of the reasons that I ran for office, and I am very proud to have worked hard to pass this ordinance that will bring more transparency and better government to Lake County”, Jennifer stated.
Potential vendors for contracts over $30,000 must now disclose campaign contribution made in the last five years to County Board members, county wide elected officials and political action committees. They must also disclose if they have a family member who are Lake County employees.
“This is a great day for Lake County and another success in our quest to bring greater accountability and transparency to Lake County government”.
