Village of Wayne (vote for 2)
James Morris correctly diagnosis the greatest threat to Wayne’s future viability: A crisis of leadership. Neither content with the status quo nor with certain other candidates’ easy answers (e.g. tax hikes), Morris promises to put to good use his many years of successful business experience if elected trustee. Strong of conviction, straightforward, and outspoken, Morris will be a jolt of electricity into the sleepy body now at the controls of Village Hall. But neither does he indulge dictatorial impulses.
Says Morris: “Respect of other opinions and considerations plays a large part of building respect and camaraderie.” Which philosophy, along with his demonstrated leadership at General Motors makes Morris the right man at the right time.
As a retired FBI Special Agent, Richard Ruminski’s career has taken him all over the United States, trained him to work effectively with government agencies at all levels, and saw him manage more than 200 employees. Tireless, Ruminski continues to offer his many talents as Security Manager for ComEd, where he has assumed responsibility for managing an investigative team and creating the budget with which to do so.
Ruminski is in many respects a throwback to the citizen-servant ideal upon which our republic was founded. He has an abiding love for Wayne and true faith in its greatness, which is why he is offering himself up to lead Wayne as a trustee. We believe in Ruminski, and Wayne would to well to accept his offer.
Morris and Ruminski are endorsed.
