Women making Lake Forest history on City Council
Prue Beidler, Michelle Moreno and Cathy Waldeck will make history May 5 in Lake Forest, when Beidler and Moreno will be sworn in as city councilwomen, joining incumbent Waldeck.
For the first time in Lake Forest's history, three women will serve on the City Council. They're ready, the newly elected councilwomen said, to work on – among other topics – city finances, which Waldeck said will remain a key issue.
