An Eye for an Eye:09.05.09

Your LakeCountyEye is preoccupied with applying for a seat on the Medical Marijuana Advisory Board. In the meantime, please enjoy this encore presentation of a post from a few years ago:

Set in Stone

The latest scuttlebutt comes down the pike from your LakeCountyEye's sister blog, the TeamAmerica10th. Lisa Stone -- a Buffalo Grove Trustee -- is being talked about as a possible candidate for Rep District 59:
Look here for Stone's village trustee website, which is pretty darn impressive for a local candidate. State Rep. Sid Mathias and County Board Member David Stolman were Stone's honorary campaign chairmen and resoundingly endorsed her candidacy for trustee.
Lineup in 59th District Continues to Evolve; Might Lisa Stone Run as a Dem or Republican? Plus, Bird Flies from 10th District Race
Your LakeCountyEye doesn't mind saying that Lisa Stone is one elected official worth watching. Is it any wonder that Stone caught the discerning eye of Lake County Board Commissioner David Stolman? Here's what Stone has to say about Stolman on the Buffalo Grove Patch:
Yes, I put myself in the public eye, but only after Lake County Chairman David Stolman persuaded me to run for Trustee...it wasn't even a sparkle in my eye! I didn't know you could be a Trustee without a college degree, so it was not on my radar! When I got BSL legislation in the late 90's I thought that one day it would be interesting to get involved in local government, but I was told that one must have a degree to be a Trustee, so the irony all the way around is incredible.
Response To My Cyber-Shadow
No, Lisa, you do not need a college degree to be a Buffalo Grove Trustee, or for that matter to hold nearly any other elected office in Illinois.  All you need is a David Stolman -- someone with the proven judgement and the political clout -- to draw you out of relative obscurity and thrust you into the political limelight!

Wow, I guess it's true that the past never dies on the Internet!

I would vote for her! She has gone out of her way to help me with the issue of Canadian National's transport of hazardous substances that explode, poison, and kill! She didn't have to do that, but she did. This woman is one who cares. I pray she wins.

hi Gerri,

I'll poke some fun at Lisa Stone. But I think she got a bum rap.

Hi yourself, BB. I've been keeping a low profile lately. But I still like to keep up with the Eye.
