In this week's installment of MEET IAN'S TEAM we have Joanne Hsu, our campaign editor. She helps revise Ian's sometimes legalistic writing for the website, video scripts, candidate questionnaires, and other campaign materials. Although she usually looks up words online when she's editing, she is no stranger to using a hard-copy dictionary and thesaurus. During the summer months Joanne can often be found swimming laps at Centennial Beach.
Although it may still be cold, we know the spring is just around the corner. If you recognize this picture, name this beautiful Naperville nature spot and your favorite activity there. If not, name another favorite spring spot! Photo credit: supporter Rich Kolar
35 second clip: Mental health Crisis Intervention Training (CIT). CIT a crucial part of our 2021 Naperville police budget, as a large number of 911 calls are mental health-related. Along with CIT, the 2021 budget provides additional funding for implicit bias training, a new full-time social worker, and four new uniformed officers. I support the increased funding and new hires in this budget, and encourage you to learn more about CIT here: https://www.nami.org/Advocacy/Crisis-Intervention/Crisis-Intervention-Team-(CIT)-Programs
