Sheila is running to continue her work as the Chair of the Environmental Committee for DuPage county Board, a good fit for her experiences and passions. She has worked diligently to raise awareness of how our County can have a positive effect on the environment. She has made it a goal that all County policy & action decisions consider environmental impact, weighing long-term benefit against short-term cost savings. During her time as Environmental Chair she passed the dark skies ordinance. She also sits on several committees and served on the Census and redistricting committees.
She also sits on the Technology, Development, Economic Development, Animal Services, Finance, Ad Hoc Fine Arts committee where she is Vice Chair, and the Ad Hoc Strategic Planning Committees.
We should consider all of the decisions that we make from a perspective of how it would harm our environment rather than what the cheapest cost is.
