Wheaton City councilwoman brings unique perspective to council
WHEATON — When Wheaton City Councilwoman Evelyn Pacino Sanguinetti ran for one of the council's vacant at-large positions in spring 2011, she didn't do so on the platform of bringing diversity to the City Council. But when she was elected, that's exactly what she did.
Pacino Sanguinetti was the first Latina to be elected to the council. And following the resignation of former Councilwoman Jeanne Ives to serve in the Illinois General Assembly, she now serves as the only female member of the council.
"Because we are a diverse city, I think I bring the element of that diversity to council, but I didn't run on my ethnicity or anything of that nature. That's just a bonus," Pacino Sanguinetti said. "What I bring to the table is the smarts of a professional mom that knows how to multi-task her every day as a professional and as a mom. So I come at things with a different mindset in that regard."
