"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
"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".
