Letter: In support of Chris Lauzen

By on March 1, 2012

As a lifelong resident of Kane County and a member of the Kane County Board, I have an admittedly biased opinion that Kane County is a great place to live, work and raise a family.

I am also proud of our county and local government’s ability to maintain our high quality of life in Kane County. To that end, I am wholeheartedly endorsing Chris Lauzen for Kane County Board Chairman.

Chris is a model father, husband and citizen. As a longtime member of the state Senate, Chris’s reputation for returning all calls and doggedly following up on his constituents’ issues is well known. He is a CPA and a Harvard MBA, which will serve us well, overseeing a $230 million budget and 1,300 employees.

Chris puts his constituents’ needs well above party politics and has vowed, along with other reform candidates, to eliminate the cloud unethical campaign contributions has cast over county government.

It is important to note that Chris’ opponent has stated that he plans on hiring a full-time county administrator. This would be a new six-figure salary position with full benefits. Kane County taxpayers must ask themselves, why vote for a candidate that is planning on hiring someone else to do the job?

Please consider voting for Chris Lauzen for Kane County Board Chairman and supporting his longtime vow to “Work hard, stay honest, and use common sense.”
