News and updates from Sandy

Dear Neighbor,

I hope this email finds you safe and healthy and ready for Illinois to move into Phase 4! There are many questions regarding the pandemic and what the recent changes mean; I hope you'll consider joining me at the Virtual Town Hall tomorrow night (details below), where we'll hear from several experts on COVID-19 and next steps.

April news updates

News from Sandy

Dear Neighbors,

I hope that you and your loved ones are all safe and healthy. This is a challenging time across several different fronts, and everyone has had to make adjustments in their life. In March we moved my parents in with us, and it's a full house with my husband and I working from home and our three kids learning remotely.

On the Issues

Environment

Tagging turtles in a Lake County forest preserve

Sandy is committed to preserving and improving the natural environment of Lake County, including air quality, water quality, and stormwater management. In addition to her positions as board member for District 13 and County Board Chairwoman, Sandy is a member of the Lake County Forest Preserve District.

Roads and Infrastructure

Road construction

Lake County has pressing infrastructure needs, and it is important to work closely with Springfield to secure funding where possible. In June 2019 Sandy met with Governor Pritzker to discuss Lake County’s infrastructure needs, and she joined other Lake County leaders to present these needs before the Illinois Senate Subcommittee on Capital hearing that was held here in Lake County.
