Meet Dr. Marilyn Prodromos

Noted Greek American Dr. Marilyn Prodromos was first elected as a trustee in 2014 in the Village of Winnetka, a north shore suburb not far from Chicago’s far north border. This March 15, she’ll appear on the ballot running for re-election as an independent on the “Winnetka Independents” slate along with two other candidates, Carol Fessler and Kristin Ziv.
“I ultimately decided to run as an independent again to allow me to continue the progress of my first term unencumbered by Caucus philosophies with which I often disagree. I look forward to continuing to work hard to further advance our village during a second term.” ~ Dr. Marilyn Prodromos,in a campaign statement
