NAME: Michael Wynes
FAMILY: Wife Shirley, sons Shawn and Jeremy
EDUCATION: Black Hawk College
POLITICAL PARTY: Democrat
OFFICE SOUGHT: Edgington Township trustee
PRIOR OFFICE: None
WHY RUNNING: As a taxpayer in Edington Township I feel an obligation to help administer tax dollars wisely for everyone within its boundaries.
KEY ISSUE: Roads and taxes will always be major issues for townships in this part of Illinois. How can we spend our money more efficiently? Township maintained roads in this township are in reasonably good shape. The trucks and equipment are in good condition. Let's keep the tax levy as low as possible for our residents.
