ABOUT KATIE

I am a third generation Evanstonian who has lived in the 6th Ward for more than 30 years. If I am elected in April, I will be a second generation City Council member, My stepfather, James B Moran served on the Evanston City Council in the 1970’s. His legacy is carried on through the work of the Moran Center for Youth Advocacy. My family is extremely proud of this Evanston institution and the work they do on behalf of the children and young adults of this community.

 

I have attended Evanston Public Schools, Lincolnwood, Miller, Nichols, and Chute. I graduated from ETHS and the University of Arizona.

 

After college, I moved to the East Coast and began a career as a political organizer and media buying strategist for Democratic candidates around the country.

 

In 1991, I moved back to Evanston and raised my three children, who all attended Evanston Public Schools, Lincolnwood, Haven and they all graduated from ETHS.

 

In 2004, I began a long career with the McGaw YMCA in Evanston holding the positions of Director of Youth and Family Services, Camp Echo Alumni and Development Director I currently serve as a Senior Director and Gift Officer in the Advancement Department at the YMCA.

 

I have served on the board of directors for Youth and Opportunity United, The Woman’s Club of Evanston and the Infant Welfare Society of Evanston. I am a graduate of the Evanston Community Foundation’s Leadership Evanston program in 2000.

 

I have always been interested in serving in public office and the time is right for me to make this run for office. My final decision to run for Alderman was made when our current Alderman, Tom Suffredin, was the only City Council member to vote NO on Reparations. I felt this vote did not represent my views, nor the views of my neighbors.
