Other than political experience, not much separates the three candidates when it comes to what they hope to see the Village accomplish in the future.
If you’re looking for a flashy candidate that has wildly different ideas from the rest of the field, you’ll have to look further than the Greendale Village Trustee race.

Barbian is seeking a third term on the board and Genz a second; this is Cyborowski first attempt at an elected office. About 40 potential voters listened in as the three candidates weighed in on key issues facing the Village during a nearly two-hour forum in the multi-purpose room at Greendale High School …
