Berkowicz raises concerns over rising cost of living in Naperville
Naperville City Council candidate Julie Berkowicz recently raised concerns over the rising cost of home ownership on social media.
“Has the ever increasing price of our electric, water, sewer and garbage created financial difficulties for your family and neighbors?" Berkowicz said in a Facebook post. “Naperville needs to thoroughly review these departments and bring responsible governance and long term strategic (sic) planning because the average homeowner CANNOT continue to afford this."
Berkowicz, a resident of the city for two decades, touted her roles as a wife and mother of three sons, along with local political experience, as reasons voters should consider her candidacy.
“It has been rewarding for me to mentor and teach our youth as a leader in the Boy Scouts of America for over 20 years,” she wrote on her Facebook page. Berkowicz’s sons are college graduates and former Eagle Scouts.
Her credentials include posts on the boards of St. Raphael Catholic School and the St. Francis High School Band Organization. She has also served as a housing advocate for seniors at Edward-Elmhurst Hospital in Naperville.
Berkowicz will face Michael Leland Isaac, John “Johnny” Krummen, Kevin Michael Coyne, Judy Brodhead, Kevin M. Gallaher, Benny White and Michael Strick in the April 4 election.
