How candidates misjudge to help themselves

This week, I read comments from two candidates for the Acacia Council District. Obviously, they’ve never met Councilmember Vicki Hunt. If they had, neither could give her a D rating, let alone the whole council a B rating. Peoria City Council is one of the most admired in the state by many residents. They are upstanding, doing a great job and loving their city.
As to Mrs. Hunt, she is an invaluable asset to her district. She spends, and always has spent, each and every waking hour working in her district. She doesn’t say her workload prevents her from doing anything. How can someone who is starting a new law practice have time to serve on city council, if her prior workload was too great to serve on a city commission, which requires one meeting a month at the most and little homework? (Staff does the work as recommended by members) How can someone who owns a business and only has time for a chamber committee find time to appropriately represent his constituents as a councilmember?
Folks, rather than criticizing Councilmember Vicki Hunt, walk in her shoes any day of the week or weekend and see what it really means to support your district as a councilmember. Watch her chair with the Woman’s Club an all-day domestic violence program and be commended by the chief of police for her work. Follow her in City Hall any day and see her get the answers to the questions her constituents have raised.
I’ve known Vicki Hunt, personally and professionally for 20 years. She rises far and above the job requirements to see that Old Town Peoria is becoming what it has become and will become under her guidance along with the other members of Team Peoria as city councilmembers do their work for your city.
