On the Issues
Access, Transparency, Integrity
Because the Clerk’s office receives all communications and petitions from the public and conveys that information to the City Council, it is the job of the Clerk to help the people raise their voices and ensure that their voices are heard.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved deeper than ever into the digital age, and the Clerk’s office can help lead the way. The Clerk is responsible for producing official minutes of all City meetings, processing ordinances/resolutions, updating the municipal code, ensuring free and fair elections, and accurate keeping of all City records.
The people of Evanston deserve to understand how their government works. In our current world, with new issues arising daily and information constantly changing, a clear understanding of the government’s role in our lives is more important than ever.
The Clerk’s office acts as a liaison between the community and the city. As Clerk my priority will be to empower people to voice their concerns and help them access our city government with ease.
Expanding the Clerk's Office
We can be doing more to help Evanston residents.
