I, Petrina Burman, am running for office of Village Trustee on April 6th to provide the citizens of Antioch with a strong, principled voice in local government.
Petrina was raised and has lived in the area her entire life. She has been married for 8 years to Joe, a third-generation plumber. They own and operate R.L. Burman Plumbing which has been in operation for over 100 years. Petrina and Joe have one son, who attends an Antioch public school. Petrina is proud to raise her family in such a proud, diverse & hard-working community.
Do you think as a community we can do better? Yes, we can always do better for our hometown and our own citizens’ best interests. Three village trustee seats are up for election on April 6th. After listening to citizens growing concerns, I hope to earn your trust and confidence to become a new trustee as part of your Village Board.
Do you think your Village Board trustees have done a good job of listening and communicating to YOU before voting on major issues that affect YOU? I will change that.
Has your Village Board been decisive in maintaining and improving our Village infrastructure? Extending the life of these capital assets while protecting tax dollars will be one of my highest priorities.
Are you less than delighted with your high municipal property taxes, but feel there is nothing you can do about it? Are you sure there is not a better way than the present board’s solutions? I believe there are many opportunities for more efficiency, accountability, and wise budgeting without sacrificing critical Village services.
I support our local police, fire and other first responders who work tirelessly to keep our community safe. Will other candidates give you that same commitment?
Having lived in this area all my life, and now raising my family here, I am aware of our community needs, its available resources, and our citizens’ growing concerns that the charming, historic Antioch we call home will slip away from us. Change will come to all communities and we must not be left behind. But, poor judgement and bad choices from Village leaders can destroy your confidence that possible change can be positive and on our terms.
With respect, grace, and humility, I pledge to help Village of Antioch citizens to restore our grassroots community to the best it can be to live, work, learn, play, and visit. We can do better. I am a new voice for the people! Thank you.
I encourage you to contact me with questions, comments, and or concerns. You can do so by emailing me, or via Facebook and Instagram. Please vote for me on Tuesday April 6th. I look forward to hearing from you!
