Question of the Day: Who supports this expansion plan?

This expansion plan has broad-based community support from individuals and community organizations.

The Village of Plainfield and Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202 both passed resolutions of support for the expansion plan. Representative Tom Cross, Senator Linda Holmes and Village Trustees Bill Lamb and Jim Racich expressed their support in letters to editors of local newspapers. Community organizations like the Plainfield Soccer Association, numerous parent-teacher organizations and local service organizations like the Kiwanis Club, Lions Club, and Rotary International have helped to get the word out to residents by hosting presentations and providing information to their members. Earlier this year, the Plainfield Township Park District expressed its support and intention to partner with the Library District on future projects. The Plainfield Enterprise newspaper published an editorial in support of the plan.

A volunteer Citizens Referendum Committee actively supported and campaigned for the referendum. Co-chairs Vicky Polito and Barbara Ebeling led the Committee. Other volunteers included: Cheryl Basso, Nancy Bennett, Jana Bruen, Dennis Fink, Mina Green, Nikki Kaysen, Kristy Kipka, Mary Anne Michaels, Jim Racich, Elsbeth Ritz, Anthony Scala, Mary Stevens, Dawn Strand, Louise Svehla, Janet Swatek, Tammy Tunac, Jim and Mary Anne Waldorf, Bill and Pam Wilson, and Erica Wood-Bedi.
