Champaign City Council

WDWS radio asked me about my interest in applying for the Champaign City Council vacancy that will be created by Dave Johnson’s resignation.

Dave Johnson is a good friend and has served us well on the Council, on County Board, and at the UI. When I heard about his resignation, I began to discuss with my family and friends about the great opportunity to further serve my community. The Council has not yet determined their process for filling the vacancy. When they do announce that process, I plan to apply and I hope to be considered.

February Blues turned into Blast!

This snow is getting really old around here and we all needed a change of scenery this weekend.  So we headed out with our best friends (Cirks & Uncle Jackie) to Utica, IL for some fun at Grizzly Jack’s Bear Lodge.  Highly recommend it for kids of all ages.  The indoor waterpark had a lazy river, wave pool, toddler slide/pool, huge waterslides for the big kids and more!  The resort also has an indoor amusement park with carnival rides for all ages and lots of carnival games to win those cheezey prizes!  The resort also has planned activities for kids including movie nights and magic shows.  It was a great way to kill a holiday weekend with our friends.

See all pictures here of our trip to the Lodge.

I also added a ton of new pictures in the Will Hulten Gallery under the Month of January including sledding down the famous hill in Champaign for the first time, getting his second haircut at the Troy Barber Shop with Dave and Uncle Al and our quick Saturday trip to Shedd’s Aquarium in January!
