Letter: For Dave Anderson, it is about public service

By on March 19, 2009

I have been a life-long resident of Blackberry Township and currently serve as the Highway Commissioner in Blackberry Township. I have never had the need to write a letter to the editor prior to the experience I had last week while in Elburn.

As I was leaving a local gas station, I was asked, “Why would Dave Anderson leave the position of Blackberry Township Supervisor and run for Mayor of the Village of Elburn—a position that would pay about half of what he is currently making?”

My response was simple, having worked with David for the past 12 years. I said, “It has never been about the money with Dave. It is about public service.”

Working with Dave has truly been enjoyable and I will miss his leadership and forward thinking. The village of Elburn’s gain is the township’s loss.
