Mary Lou Wehrli Candidate ~ District 5 Forest Preserve District of DuPage County
Mary Lou WehrliCandidate ~ District 5Forest Preserve District of DuPage County


The best accomplishments bring people together. My Exhibit A: Country Lakes Atwater.


I am proud to have brought together a developer, a city, a conservation organization and homeowners to create a model of success. I care. I listen. I connect. I show up.


By identifying and honoring the strengths of each organization, conservation and development support each other. A public servant given the confidence and vote of the electorate should be a champion. I am a champion. I ask for your vote.


The Conservation Foundation does not endorse candidates, but they work with many elected officials and candidates and citizens and businesses and NGOs and governmental agencies. I am happy to report that some sausage-making is delicious. The success of these multiple-win partners is glorious to behold.


Consider becoming a member of The Conservation Foundation.

Bipartisan strength . Bipartisan kindness

Integrity . Teamwork . Courage
