STATEMENTS OF SUPPORT
For many years I have observed and admired Darlene’s work in our community in a variety of grassroots organizations and initiatives. Then in September of 2019, I had the opportunity to sit next to her during a very long bus trip, with a large group of other Evanstonians, as we traveled to Montgomery and Selma Alabama to tour the Legacy Museum and the Memorial for Peace and Justice. During those hours I learned more about Darlene, the woman and of her sincere and heartfelt commitment to advocating for progressive policies that will foster social, economic, racial and environmental justice for all people in Evanston. Darlene is an emerging leader in our community who will bring new vision, ideas, energy and commitment to the role she now aspires to serve in as the Alderwoman of the Second Ward of Evanston.
I support Darlene Cannon for Alderwoman of 2nd Ward. I've been friends with Darlene for the past 34 years. It's been an honor to watch Darlene take action in the community, inspiring us all to seek ways to advocate and create equity. The fight for social change is long and tiring, and for this and so many other reasons, I admire her strength, courage, and leadership skills. She will make a great alderwoman, because she will provide the sort of relief so many of us require in this moment.
I want to support someone who prioritizes the most vulnerable members of the ward and community, and I believe Darlene is the best candidate to do that.
I support Darlene Cannon for the 2nd Ward because she is the absolute best choice. The understands first hand the problems the town is facing. She has been a resident and a loyal servant in the community for a long time and knows exactly what needs to be done so that Evanston a better place for its residents. I wholeheartedly believe she will work diligently and make the right decisions to improve the community. Darlene is a voice for those that aren’t being heard and the community desperately needs someone like her with a clear vision, compassion and most importantly dedication to the people of Evanston.
I have known Darlene Cannon for years and am delighted that she is running for alderman in Evanston. I am impressed with Darlene's steadfast courage to speak out for services and rights of Evanston citizens, particularly for residents in her 2nd Ward. Darlene definitely believes in "liberty and justice for all." Darlene has a keen mind for financial matters and will not hesitate as alderman to request information needed to attain the best financial investments and plans for the City of Evanston and its taxpayers. A vote for Darlene is a vote for a better Evanston.
Darlene shows a grassroots experience and dedication to the residents of Ward 2.
