Illinois Secretary of State endorses Skippy Mesirow

Dear Aspen residents,

It is with great pride that I recommend Skippy Mesirow for Aspen City Council. I have known Skippy for many years and he has proven to be a dedicated leader and true public servant.

Skippy is hardworking, focused and committed to making a difference. As a volunteer for my program that benefits Chicago’s at-risk youth, Skippy worked tirelessly to help me offer a positive alternative to the negative aspects in our society. This program, the Jesse White Tumbling Team, is a juvenile delinquency prevention program that has benefitted over 17,500 young people.

Skippy also served a key volunteer in helping me organize a program that created college scholarships to underprivileged students seeking higher education, as well as working as a key member on my successful 2010 campaign for Illinois Secretary of State. I am currently serving in my fifth term in office.

Skippy will bring this same energy and attention to detail to the residents of Aspen. He has a unique ability to bring people together and work toward the common good. He believes, like I do, that volunteerism is vital to helping those in need and building a stronger, better community.

The city of Aspen will be well served with Skippy Mesirow on the City Council. I am proud of his work, and I am sure he will make you proud too.

Jesse White

Illinois Secretary of State

Founder and coach, Jesse White Tumbling Team
