I thank the Chicago Journal for an opportunity to discuss Mirlinda Vula Feierstein, candidate for 2nd Ward Republican Committeeman in the March 20, 2012 Republican Primary Election.

Mirlinda is by parts capable, creative, perceptive, passionate and enterprising. Her high energy, amicable personality and helpful nature have allowed her to build bridges and develop friendships throughout Chicago. She is a native of the South Loop, where her family’s business, the European Touch Spa in Dearborn Station, was a neighborhood fixture for decades. Her West Side ties include Greek Town and beyond. As a real estate agent, she knows the buildings and businesses in the 2nd Ward. “Between growing up in this city and developing my real estate career here, there are not many parts in the South and West Loop that I don’t know quite well,” she says. “Knowing the history of the neighborhood, the people and the businesses is a big plus for which I am very proud. This knowledge will prove invaluable as a Committeeman.”

Mirlinda strongly backs the Republican viewpoint on restraining government taxes and unnecessary spending, while also believing in freedom, fairness and justice for all citizens. Mirlinda is also concerned about her neighborhood. “I have seen the great changes that came through development, and now a decline from the economy,” she says. “A return to business development requires restraint in government and a focus on the local needs. That won’t happen without a stronger local Republican vote to create change. A stronger GOP vote requires a lot of work.”

Mirlinda is also a unifier. “My platform is based upon integrity, building bridges and working together to get the concrete results our community desperately needs. After all, it’s where I grew up and I truly care about these people. I will work to bring about real and positive change.”

With her passion for politics and people, Mirlinda is looking forward to future GOP events with the many local restaurateurs whom she knows as long time friends. “Building the Republican vote is a necessity for Chicago’s future free from the Machine,” she says. “There is no reason why it should not be fun for the volunteers and voters as well!”
