I would like to thank the 1,600 voters that cast their ballot for my candidacy for Brookfield village trustee on April 5. The VIP party has always had the interest and welfare of the taxpayers of Brookfield first and foremost in their hearts and minds.

It is unfortunate that just 24.7 percent of the registered voters in Lyons Township turned out to vote. Citizens of many countries in the world are fighting for the basic right to vote, a right that many in this country take for granted. It is important to take the time to vote for those that will govern and lead us until the next election.

Lastly, I would like to congratulate the newly elected members of the Brookfield Village Board, C.P. Hall, Ryan Evans, and Kit Ketchmark and wish them success.

Wil Brennan
