Endorsed Candidates for Elmhurst City Council - 2011 Election

We love Elmhurst.  But, it really stinks.  We're not talking about the wonderful schools or amazing park system, rather we're talking about the terrible skunk problem.  After not seeing any action from the City Council, we decided to empower all the residents of Elmhurst to demonstrate how these skunks are affecting our lives.

You can get involved by submitting your skunk sightings, learning ways to eliminate skunks or by signing our petition to urge the Mayor and City Council to act - and ACT NOW!
