Why the Environment is Even More Important

Hi this is Leslie Harris, and I recycled when recycling wasn’t cool. There’s a country song in there somewhere, but I digress.

Many years ago, I was living in Chicago, rinsing out my then boyfriend’s beer cans, gathering up newspapers and hauling them to recycling dumpsters in a parking lot at a 7-Eleven.

My how times have changed, so much so, that the environment has become a hot topic for the upcoming spring elections in Naperville. Naperville has 11 candidates for City council, and three candidates for mayor.

The city council candidates will speak about environmental issues on March 8th, and mayoral candidates will meet on March 13th. Both of these forums will take place at 7:00 p.m. at First Congregational church. The consolidated general election takes place on April 4th.

What steps do you take to help our environment? Let me know in the Facebook comments.
