NAME: Emil Maslanka
AGE: 64
ADDRESS: Coal Valley
OCCUPATION: Retired - 28 years Department of Army - Contracting Officer
FAMILY: Married
EDUCATION: Bachelor of Science, Western Illinois University
POLITICAL PARTY: Write-In Candidate, Independent
OFFICE SOUGHT: Coal Valley Village President (Mayor)
PRIOR OFFICE: None
WHY RUNNING: Current president, Stan Engstrom, is not running again. Only one name is on the ballot. I believe residents deserve a choice for new village leadership.
KEY ISSUE: The Village of Coal Valley has a substantial surplus in its annual operating budget. However, our taxes have increased these past several years with no described benefits to support those increases.
COMMENTS: I have considerable career experience in resolving controversial issues by working closely together with all affected parties. Utilizing my experience, I will manage the village budget to keep taxes and fees as low as possible, while still providing all the necessary services that residents expect.
