Episode Twenty-Five: Local Politics Part Two- Republicans


It's time for part two of our local politics series!  This week Marty Keller was in the hot seat.  Marty is a lifelong republican who was elected and served his township as an elected trustee.  Marty and Colleen talked about why Marty is a republican, some ways the party has changed and what serving at the local level has looked like for him. 


Marty is currently the executive director of Milton Township’s CERT program, a program designed to help prepare the community to respond in emergency situations.  He also serves as the vice president of DuPage County’s historical museum foundation and as a board member of the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce.  Up until recently Marty was elected to and served on our township’s trustee board.
