This is the second installment in a series on our 19th ward aldermanic candidates.
I met Anne Schaible recently at a community meeting. We discussed her positions on environmental issues. She is a regular volunteer with Friends of the Forest Preserves at habitat restoration workdays. She strongly supports expansion of the city's recycling program and replacement of the city's fleet vehicles with hybrid or electric vehicles when old vehicles are due for replacement. She favors preservation of existing green spaces, creation of new green spaces on vacant blighted land, and better care for our city's trees. Addressing pollution issues to improve air quality is an important priority for her. She supports pedestrian safety measures to make the 19th ward a safer place to walk.
This information supplements what is available on her official campaign web site.
I also recommend reading her responses to the Tribune editorial board questionnaire. She has not responded to IVI-IPO's candidate questionnaire, so there is no additional information there. To date, only Ray Coronado and Diane Phillips have responded to the IVI-IPO questionnaire.
