Letter: Dave Anderson offers decades of service

By on March 19, 2009

On April 7 we will support Dave Anderson for the position of President of the Elburn Village Board.

Dave has been a long-time ambassador for Elburn and the entire Kaneland community. He is a life-long resident and graduate of Kaneland High School.

Having operated Gliddon’s Drug Store for over 25 years—just across the street from Dave and his father’s grocery store—we have had the opportunity to see first-hand his enthusiasm and support for our village.

Dave brings decades of retail business experience, community service and government involvement with him in his run for office. He has been an active member of St. Gall’s Parish and the Elburn Lions Club.

As past President and three-term member of the Kaneland School Board, he volunteered his time to prepare meals for the children of Kaneland grade schools at the end-of-the-year picnics at Lion’s Park in Elburn. Dave has experience in local and county politics. He is a former Elburn trustee and past chairman of the Elburn Zoning Board of Appeals, and has also served on the Kane County Regional Planning Commission and the Kane County Zoning Board of Appeals.

For the past 27 years, he has been on the board of Delnor-Community Hospital, holding the positions of Chairman of the Hospital Board of Directors for two terms and Chairman of the Delnor Health System Board of Directors for two terms. He is currently Vice-Chair of the Delcom Board of Directors. Dave has been a long-term Supervisor of Blackberry Township, a position from which he will step down to run for village office.

In conclusion, we urge your support of Dave Anderson for the next Village President of Elburn. We believe he has the common sense, business and governmental experience to lead Elburn responsibly into the future.

Ken and Mary E. Gustafson
