RESPECT OUR RESIDENTS • RESTORE PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITY RESUME FOXCONN UPDATES • REDUCE SPENDING & DEBT REASONABLE & TRANSPARENT DEVELOPMENT
Kelly Gallaher Village President My name is Kelly Gallaher. I have been a resident of Mount Pleasant for more than thirty years. I have been working for a better Mt. Pleasant as a resident as the spokesperson for the local watchdog organization A Better Mt. Pleasant. I am a YWCA Woman of Distinction and the winner of the Phyllis Dresen Spirit of Democracy Award.
As Village President, I will work for you — not wealthy developers or private foreign corporations. I will stop the spending spree at village hall and immediately end the draining of public funds by unaccountable Foxconn consultants.
It's time to step up and create something better in Mount Pleasant. I am ready to lead as your Village President. You can contact and learn more about me on my website and on through the links below:
My Name Is Travis Yanke and I am running for Mount Pleasant Trustee #1. I am running to ensure Mount Pleasant residents, like you, have a voice again in Village affairs. I have lived in Mount Pleasant since 2009. Currently, I am a US Medical Affairs Director for Clinical Research Operations at AbbVie.
Since moving to Mount Pleasant in 2009 I have been an advocate for my neighbors, its residents. Over the past decade I have had numerous interactions with our Village Board and Staff related to development concerns which impacted us directly. During this time, it became apparent the Village did NOT have the residents’ best interest in mind.
I believe development decisions in our village should be made in a transparent and educated manner, while considering the impact on Mount Pleasant residents. I'd be honored to have your vote on April 4th, 2023. You can contact and learn more about me on my website and on the links below:
My name is Kim Mahoney and I am running for Mount Pleasant Village Trustee #3.
I want to live in a Village where local government works at the pleasure of residents, not wealthy developers. I want residents to be able to have open conversations with Village staff and elected officials rather than having to file open records requests. I want homeowners to be assured that they are not going to have their property taken from them for the benefit of a foreign corporation or out-of-state investors. I want to grow old in Mount Pleasant without having to worry about how I will pay annual property tax increases. I want residents to feel comfortable reporting a problem without being labeled a nuisance. I want the people of Mount Pleasant to be treated like neighbors. Those things will not happen unless we have a sweeping change to the current Village Board.
