“NapervilleNext” Survey

The City of Naperville  is currently conducting a “NapervilleNext” Survey and has requested the assistance of the “2020 Census Naperville Complete Count Committee” to help spread the word.

We are asking ALL Naperville Residents to help and complete the survey!

SCARCE: One-Stop Recycling Information

I hate throwing things away, not so much because I cling to things, but because I cringe at wasting anything. I was compliling a list of local resources for myself when I discovered that SCARCE already has most of what I was looking for. Highly recommended!

Apart from the many things they themselves accept, they have a comprehensive reference page for other resources, including special recycling events and specialty drop-off resources.

Campaign Season Delayed

The 2022 election cycle was delayed by the state legislature due to Trump delaying the census. The new primary will be on June 28, 2022.  Petitions will be from January 13-March 14 with lower numbers of signatures required than in previous years.

The most immediate consequence is that the “Campaign Bootcamp” previously announced here has been postponed until August 31st. More details will be provided here as soon as the rest of the new schedule is worked out.

It’s really awkward to expect new candidates to start 7 months before petitions but if anyone is interested in getting involved this summer there will be plenty of opportunities. Thanks for your patience!
