Lukasik conveys gratitude for Algonquin win
Cary resident and Republican Karen Lukasik thanked constituents after winning the GOP candidacy slot for Algonquin Township clerk in the jurisdiction’s primary election Tuesday.
"I want to thank all that supported me in this election,” she said via Facebook after her win.
During her recent campaign, Lukasik pointed to her background in preparation for her election bid for Algonquin Township clerk, emphasizing both her experience and her ability to handle multiple tasks concurrently.
“I have the experience, the education and the commitment to make the Algonquin Township Clerk's office more effective and efficient,” Lukasik said on her Facebook page during campaign season, adding her experience at the local government level will let her continue serving efficiently.
“My years as a village trustee have allowed me to personally experience policy making and the type of leadership that is necessary to manage a municipality,” the candidate said on Facebook.
Lukasik underscored the balance between time, cost and efficiency as well as adopting best practices. She referred to her track record of “responsiveness and accountability” to stress her continuous connection to constituents.
At one time she studied to obtain a graduate degree in public administration while simultaneously serving a Cary Village trusteeship. During the campaign, she continued working on her doctorate degree in organizational leadership while substitute teaching in local school districts.
Lukasik also made a point of raising voter awareness during her bid, including advocating for early voting. She defeated Melissa Sanchez-Fischer in the primary election.
“You have no idea how much this means to me,” Lukasik said on Facebook after her victory. “I'm looking forward to serving you all and improving the Clerk's office … I am blessed to have so much support from all of you!! Thank you again!!"
