Today, our young people struggle with a variety of stresses that we cannot ignore. Drug and alcohol use, suicide, mental health issues, and all types of bullying are threatening the healthy future of this generation. As a young dad, Mike is committed to seeing that the City is maximizing its resources to deal with these issues.
Our public safety officials are working every day to help our youth survive and thrive. We need to support these efforts as a government and partner with our health care professionals and civic groups to expand our reach, awareness and capability. Getting drugs out of the hands of young people, providing support for mental health initiatives, and parental education are a healthy start. Mike is committed to finding ways to support these initiatives through community and social service grants and community education.
With the growth of the restaurant and retail sectors of Downtown Naperville, Mike believes the City must be vigilant watchdogs and strong collaborators in ensuring that liquor licensing and liquor laws create a healthy business mix and protect the integrity and safety of our downtown.”
