I am Erin Moncek, and I am running for Will County Board District 12, which covers New Lenox and Mokena. I was born and raised in New Lenox, and my husband and I are raising our two boys here as well.
Currently, I work at the Joliet Park District part-time as the Interim Skating Director. I am also enrolled in graduate school part-time, seeking a Master’s Degree in English studies with the goal of teaching on the college level.
My husband has worked for the railroad for the last 13 years, and a union member of SMART 1299.
Both of my children experienced health issues, and I had to learn how to advocate and fight on their behalf in order to get the answers and treatment needed. Now that they are thriving, I would like to advocate for my community.
I understand first hand how hard life can be in the middle class. My youngest son experienced health issues from very early on in life. I wasn’t working at the time, and my husband’s hours were cut at work. We had just moved into our new home, and medical bills started piling up fast. I understand how every dollar can count, and I hope to do right by the residents of New Lenox and Mokena.
I will take the time to listen and bring a fresh voice to the residents of Will County District 12.
