If you want to get something done in Naperville, it’s simple, just get elected to the city council, then have the courage to push it through. That’s exactly what councilwoman Jennifer Bruzan Taylor did during the June 20th city council meeting when she wasn’t about to take anything less than a ‘yes’ answer for her ‘pet project’ of a sidewalk extension primarily for kids walking to school.
It wasn’t that long ago when she was in front of the dais using her three minutes of public forum to advocate for the same safety issue. Now she is sitting behind the dais hearing a different version.
Watch and listen to Taylor interact with city traffic engineer, Michael Hynes, who was there in place of Bill Novack, Director of TED (transportation, engineering and development:
Taylor very tactfully yet assertively was able to accomplish what she couldn’t accomplish on the other side of the dais. Well done councilwoman Taylor.
