Wilmette Friends began as a local effort to illuminate outside activists targeting our local 2017 elections for District 39 Board of Education, New Trier Township board and Wilmette Park District board. Our efforts seemed to strike a chord, and hundreds of residents signed on as supporters. Armed with FACTS about the candidates, their positions, and the financial and operational support provided by outside activists, the community responded definitively in rejecting these non-local influences on District 39 schools, New Trier Township and the Wilmette Park District.
Those same activists and their outside ideological backers are back at it. And thus, so are we. Our goal then, as now, is to be a community resource for factual information that is free from non-local influences and agendas.
Pay attention, support our local schools, municipal governing bodies and talk to your friends and neighbors. We thank you heartily for your continued support and vigilance.
