J. Edgar Mihelic for Brookfield Library Trustee

When the community turned against the referendum in 2016, I thought that Brookfield missed an opportunity to invest in the future by going to the debt markets at a historically good bargain.

The need for a new facility in 2016 was real, and the need continues to be real. I have been involved in the next phase of development. As the Vice President of the Foundation for the Brookfield Library for the last two years, I have helped find private investors to make a new, reimagined facility closer to reality.

The new building is still only on paper though. The next four years will see that concept become reality, and I hope to represent the community as we take the idea on the drawing board and create it in brick in mortar. With an MBA from Concordia and a Master?s in Economics from Roosevelt in progress, I have the education; with eight years of experience at a local nonprofit; I can represent the citizens of Brookfield as a steward of their tax dollars as we all invest in our future.

It is not just about building the new library. That same experience gives me the knowledge and know-how to help support the whole mission of the library and its programs.
