Marti Deuter is experienced, honest and organized, and she puts residents first.
Candidates for the position of alderman should have the following characteristics: I believe that Marti Deuter has all of these characteristics, which is why, on April 9, I will be voting for Marti Deuter for 1st Ward Alderman. —Kristin Whitehurst, Elmhurst
Fifth Ward Candidate Bob Kolb told police someone stole hundreds of dollars worth of his campaign signs.
About 38 political signs were stolen between March 11 and March 29, Elmhurst police reported. The theft was reported at 3:14 p.m. March 29. The victim told police that all of the signs were posted on private property. Loss is estimated at $300. Fifth Ward candidate Bob Kolb in his blog on Elmhurst Patch this week said he is the victim. He said the signs were taken from "my own front yard to Mack's Golden Pheasant. There are simply too many locations ... to list each." The city didn't take them down, he said. And it probably isn't his opponent, 5th Ward incumbent Chris Healy, police reportedly told Kolb. So who did? "More likely his over-zealous supporters," Kolb said he was told by police.

Brinkmeier will apply the highest standards to achieve the best outcomes for students, the community and district employees.
Wednesday, March 20
I believe District 205 needs another proven leader on its board, and that leader is Alan J. Brinkmeier. We no longer want someone who has no experience or understanding of our community. School Board members are among the most important community positions. The decisions that they make not only effect students, but also school district employees and residents on a daily basis. I believe Alan is the best candidate for a board position because he understands all aspects of this job. When acting as a School Board member, one must start with the understanding that every student has the basic right to a great public school education and put those interests first before their own. I believe Alan fully embraces this understanding and will always …

A guide to the April 2013 mayoral race: Will it be Steve Morley, Diane Gutenkauf or Mark Mulliner?
The three-way race for Elmhurst mayor includes aldermen from the 1st, 6th and 7th wards, who all say they are uniquely suited to bringing consensus to the City Council and representing taxpayers.

He also previously served on Elmhurst Public Library Board for six years. Steve Morley also is a life-long Elmhurst resident, and he is president of an Elmhurst business. …
