My experience of being Village President is very important for this election. I have a proven track record of accomplishments that I have achieved while Village President and while I served as Village Trustee. (My opponent does not show any major accomplishments over his 13 years as trustee.) These accomplishments prove that I have the leadership qualities to lead the Village into the future. Being an active participant in community events is important as well for the position of Village President. This gives me the ability to talk to residents one on one to find out what they like and what they think we need to improve on in the community. My experience as a project manager also helps being Village President. I know how to lead a group, get participation, and how to track progress. Selling Banking services, in my past, gave me the knowledge of how to bring new business to our community. Finally, with my financial background, I understand how important budgets are and how important it is to live within the budget. This discipline has helped Sugar Grove get an A+ rating by Standard and Poor’s.
The first 23 years of my career were spent in Telecommunications where I held a number of professional positions such as Technical Training Specialist, Customer Service Representative, and Quality Control Process & Metric Engineer. The last ten years I have spent working and building my own Real Estate and Property Management business. With my diverse background I would like to bring my Quality control, Customer Service, and Business experiences to the table and apply my outstanding business skills to our Village Projects, Programs, and residents need’s.
