Lillian Henegar is seeking re-election as Bloomington Township Trustee. The Democrat precinct chairs elected Henegar in March 2013 to finish the current term for Linda Sievers, who resigned early due to family issues.
Henegar said “I want to continue serving Bloomington Township residents. The Township has many challenges ahead. I want to address the myriad conditions arising from a widening income gap in creative and collaborative ways that empower and respect individuals and families. In addition, funding stability is crucial to providing the quality of fire and emergency services the Township’s residents expect and deserve. Ensuring this stability into the future is a priority of mine.”
“My diverse combination of experiences, talents, and education qualify me to tackle the diverse responsibilities of the Township Trustee. I am dedicated to public service and Democratic values – striving for a compassionate equitable society and for sound stewardship of public resources and responsibilities.”
Henegar grew up in Monroe County and has been involved in the Democratic Party since a young teen. She has lived in diverse communities across the country, earned a master’s degree in public administration, and held professional and volunteer leadership positions in government and nonprofits serving local government and low-income communities.
