Candidate has not yet answered question.
I have served as the Sugar Grove Township Clerk for the past 12 years. I have also worked in local government my entire career and recently retired after 36 years in the field of parks & recreation. I was employed for 30 years with the Fox Valley Park District and managed the Prisco, Eola and Vaughan Athletic Centers during my career there. Most recently I was employed for the past 6 years as the Superintendent of Recreation and Safety Coordinator for the Warrenville Park District. What makes me a good candidate for Township Supervisor is my hands-on experience working in the public sector and establishing relationships and partnerships with other governmental and non-profit agencies over the course of my career.
I serve as director for several private and charitable Board of Directors.I have been on the TWP board for the last four years and have helped eliminate the deceptive practices imposed upon the trustees and the public taxpayers.I feel my duty to the TWP is my responsibility when I gave the oath of office and I will ALWAYS live up to that.It is the trustees responsibility to uphold the standards and ethics to fulfill taxpayer expectations and my personal goal is to exceed those expectations.
Our family business is over 120 years old and counting. In addition our farms grow food for the nation and the world. I also own and operate my own business in Sugar Grove. My experiences and are throughout my lifetime and I can personally operate every position in all those entities. I am hands on and understand accounting and management from an early age, throughout college and each day in business. I have the passion and desire to improve the TWP as I have my other pursuits.I am a team builder and innovator with high moral character.
I moved to Sugar Grove in 1985, in 1993 I established a business , tax consulting and investment service located in Sugar Grove. We provide service to small and medium sized business as well as individuals. The business has grown and now we have clients in Illinois as well several other states. I have found that successful business have a common denominator. The more efficient the business, the greater the positive effect on profits. This theory should also apply to the Township: the more efficient it operates, the lower amount of taxes required to fund the Township.
