Let's get it done!
We live in a safe area, with quality schools, new hospitals, open space and solid transportation. That's not by accident. It takes work.
Things are not always simple. Grants, Studies, Consultants, and Professionals all play a role along with a committed, award winning team of County employees.
Even then it takes just a little bit more and sometimes you just need to role up your sleeves and volunteer.
Paint a wall at a high school, sing at church, pick some weeds, shovel a driveway for someone in need. We are a community.
What seems to resonate
Whether speaking to a resident or business owner the common theme seems to be consistency and predictability.
We all want to know what to expect, anticipate and be able to count on.
Please join me in keeping that goal in the forefront for our families and businesses.
Some of things I am proud to have helped with ...
While on the Village Board in Gilberts we faced a situation where the Old Town neighborhood experienced failing wells. We worked with developers to build our first Deep Well and Water Treatment Plant bringing water and sewer to those residents for nothing more than a nominal hook up fee.
As Booster Club President, we set a goal and raised the funds needed to supplement the School District's line item to bring the Jacob's High School track from 4 lanes to the 6 lanes needed to host IHSA track meets.
Working with fellow business owners and community leaders as a Board member of Destination Dundee, we fought for and successfully defended an attempt to over turn Home Rule for East Dundee. This could have been devastating for the community.
