CHICAGO – Beauty, brawn, or brains is not something one would think about when it come time to vote. And who am I to suggest that to be elected one should consider beauty over brawn, or brawn's over brains for that matter. The beauty of it all is that the water reclamation department incumbent, Cynthia Santos, has decided that the voters should have the luxury of placing all three into office; beauty, brawn, and brains. Early voting for the March 18th primary has already began. Folks who have already made up their mind can vote early; all the way up to Saturday, March 15, 2014 at 43 early voting locations in Chicago and the collar counties if they present a photo ID.

During a non-presidential election voters are lax about turning out to vote. So there is a dynamic three who are not career politicians who has decided what a better time than now to branch out to educate, motivate, and encourage today’s youth to claim their stake in the political process, and allow their voices to be heard. Water reclamation department incumbent, Cynthia Santos, is up for re-election, and she has attracted the talent of two very capable, and highly educated young men to balance out her efforts; Adam Miguest, and Tom Courtney. The two, Miguest, and Courtney, bring to the table some innovative ideas. The three share the common thread of their commitment to public service. Miguest shares that his experience from working at Cook County hospital has enlightened him on how his knowledge and experience will be an asset during the public health aspect of the water reclamation department.

The beauty of voting for Commissioners of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (3 to be nominated) is each voter get to select three candidates. Miguest explains that he is a prime selection for the position because of his commitment to insure that proper investments in energy efficient technologies is properly handled as this has the capacity to create hundreds of thousands of much needed new construction, energy service, and building maintenance jobs throughout Chicago-land. Climate and energy legislation are vitally important to the success of our economy, and the health of our environment, Miguest explains.

The beauty of voting for this team of three, Cynthia Santos, is an incumbent, and can successfully navigate her team through much of the learning curve that comes from being new on the job. The strength, brawn's, is Tom Courtney, and his law background, coupled with his commitment to be a “voice for the voiceless,” and of course Adam Miguest will be able to hit the ground running from his experience, and training while working in the public health aspect via Cook County hospital.

Deacons Choice ~ an independent film soon to be released

"Deacon's Choice" is described as a powerful story of an ex-Chicago politician that embodies the trickle effect of selfishness, cover-ups, addiction and consequence that has chipped away one young lady's heart, passion and esteem. The intensity is just as stimulating as "Requiem for a Dream" yet its cultured like the movies "This Christmas with Chris Brown" and "Fire Proof." This compulsive tale of a family's secret reminds us that life for each of us has its own individual journey.

One would assume the film's name derived from a religious title, but this twin story explains one young lady's journeys through life, evoking the inner landscape of her longing to connect to love and feeling loved by her mother. Deacon's Choice uniquely illustrates parallel stories that are parables of happiness gloriously found and tragically lost linked by her fathers' choice to pursue a relationship beyond his marriage, causing the hearts, passions and esteems of both mother and daughter to slowly chip away by this long-lived facade.

This film exposes an unincorporated world of confusion but measures strength, not from one's demeanor but by each characters internal self, riding on emotional roller coasters in pursuit of closure.

Once the blinders are removed from Deacon's eyes, she is presented with the truth. That has destroyed her family's once solid foundation. The heartbreaking details of this confession have crystallized all the years of her insecurities and self-doubt, leaving Deacon devastated and realizing she has bared the brunt of the situation her entire life.
