Letter: Let’s work together to make Elburn the best it can be

By on February 12, 2009

I have served on the board of trustees for Elburn for almost two years.

During this time, I have seen the explosion of growth and the slowing market that we are now experiencing. During this time, many good things have happened in Elburn. We have a state-of-the-art Jewel and a number of businesses that have joined the village.

The Walgreen store at Route 38 and Route 47 will be yet another major retailer soon joining the ranks. The downturn in the economy has slowed the growth, but definitely not stopped it. Keslinger Plaza has been approved and will provide a dynamic entrance to the village at Keslinger and Route 47. NBT, one of the newer businesses, has played a major role in supporting village activities such as Day in the Park and National Night Out Against Crime.

Now you have an opportunity to make a choice. When you cast your ballot on April 7, please take a moment to think about the future, because our opportunity lies in the future and we must welcome the opportunity to challenge ourselves to meet adversity with enthusiasm, to greet each day as a chance to make our lives better, to look forward, not back, and to work together to make Elburn the very best it can be.

Candidate for President,
