Letter: In support of Pat Schuberg for Elburn village trustee

By on April 4, 2013

Why vote for Pat Schuberg?

In my opinion, it’s not a question of “Why should we vote for Patricia Schuberg?” but “Why would we not?”

In my 20 years of village service, I only have once before endorsed any candidate for village office. In this election, however, I must offer my endorsement of Patricia Schuberg, as I know she would be a superlative village trustee.

I have known Pat and her family for over 20 years. She has served with me on the Elburn Planning Commission. Our families have worshipped together, and she and I have worked together at Lazarus House.

She is a woman who, without ego or search for praise, has worked to keep Elburn as that special place to live, as well as serving our larger community.

She is a woman who, selflessly, has worked to shepherd her sons and many of our other young men to achieve the highest of ethical goals through our Scout programs.

As a woman of faith, she has helped those less fortunate through Hesed House, Lazarus House and Feed My Starving Children.

If you want a trustee who understands the complexity of careful management of village revenues and services, her MBA will well serve all of us.

If you want a trustee who understands the need and benefits of retail growth, having been a small business owner herself, she will work to strengthen Elburn’s business community.

If you want a trustee who intimately understands growth and land development, her 15 years on the village Planning Commission—six years of which she led that body as its chairperson—then you should cast your vote for Pat.

Please join me on April 9 and elect Pat Schuberg to the Village Board.
