My name is Terri Isaacson and I am running for Mt. Pleasant Village Trustee for seat #2 in the spring election. As a working mom, specializing in customer service, I understand the value of treating people with patience and respect. This experience makes me a qualified candidate for trustee. If elected, I will bring needed diligence and consideration to Village Hall.

I was born and raised in Racine and I moved to Mt Pleasant thirty years ago. I have been married to my husband, Paul for thirty three years and we have a daughter, Erica.

I have worked for Putzmeister America for nearly two decades and I currently work in the Customer Service Group.

Running a growing village like Mt. Pleasant is a big job, but it also requires common sense. My thinking is “if it’s not broken don’t fix it.” Village Trustees are spending taxpayer money – your money. We have a duty to be responsible, to ask questions and make sure that we are protecting your investment in our community.

As a resident of Hwy V, my family and I have lived this situation. Dozens of families on Hwy V are being assessed for sewer and water no one asked for – services for development in Caledonia that was never part of the original contract. Worse, we discovered the contract had been changed. Those changes will cost families tens of thousands of dollars each.

All this was voted through by my opponent, Rick McCluskey and other trustees without clear and responsible communication to residents. We were informed of a vote just 48 hours before it happened. In spite of our objections and questions to the board, no one listened or responded.

That’s no way to treat residents and taxpayers and I will work to make sure no resident in Mt. Pleasant ever experiences such indifference and arrogance by their elected officials. Trustees should be able and willing to explain every vote they take. If elected, I will explain every vote I take, and I will listen to the thoughts and concerns of residents FIRST. That’s just common sense customer service.

Mt. Pleasant is a fantastic place to live and work, our way of living deserves officials who really care about people and see them as partners, not as a nuisance during public comments at Village Board meetings. As Village Trustee, I will work for you, every day.

Thank you for your consideration. The primary election date is Tuesday, February 16th. I would be honored to have your vote.
