Michael Smith Announces Run for Trustee of the Village of Riverdale (Riverdale, IL) – Hello My name is Michael Smith, and after praying, talking with my family, my neighbors and my Pastor Apostle Andre Taylor, I have decided to run for Village Trustee in Riverdale, Illinois.
After being out of the political arena since April of 2017 I feel that my community needs me to stand up and be the voice of the residents of Riverdale. As I stood at the polls on election day in Riverdale I heard many of the residents of Riverdale voice many of my concerns and that’s when I decided it was time to do something.
You cannot affect change by just sitting aside. You must get involved. I am running on a platform of being ACCESSIBLE to the residents and ensuring that their voices are being heard. Also, following back up to ensure their concerns are addressed properly. I bring EXPERIENCE to the table being a former Village of Dixmoor Trustee for over 8 years. I served as the youngest elected official in the State of Illinois, getting elected at the age of 18 as a senior in High School at Thornton in Harvey, Illinois. As Trustee I served as the Chairman of the Finance, Legislative, and Public Works Committee.
I understand the inner workings of a municipal government. Last but not least, I will be TRANSPARENT about the affairs of the Village of Riverdale. I will ensure each resident knows what is going on in the Village as well as seek their input and knowledge on how we can best serve them. I will work to build partnerships with our School Board and Park District to ensure we have recreational opportunities for our youth and seniors. I want to ensure that all of Riverdale residents are taken care of. I will work to earn your signatures that will help me to get on the ballot as well your vote that will secure me a seat on the Village of Riverdale Board of Trustees. I ask for your Vote and support February 28, 2023.
