Kaneville Twp. supervisor

By on April 5, 2013

Two candidates will vie for the Kaneville Township supervisor seat on April 9.

Dan Ebert
Kaneville Township Supervisor Dan Ebert will seek re-election on April 9.

Ebert, 65, has served as Fire Board trustee, president, secretary and treasurer, township trustee and supervisor. He’s a past chairman of Country Evangelical Covenant Church, and has served as a Kaneville volunteer firefighter and emergency medical technician, as well as a fire investigator for Kane County. He’s also a member of the “Good Ol’ Boys Gospel Singers” group.

Ebert defines the role of township supervisor as a CEO.

“Township supervisors are responsible for all of the funds that come into the township and the General Assistance Program, and (they) run the township board meeting,” he said.

Ebert was appointed to the position of township supervisor after the passing of former Kaneville Township supervisor Leon Gramley, and said he wants to serve another term to complete some projects that have begun during his time as township supervisor.

Should he realize re-election, Ebert’s top priorities as township supervisor will include ensuring that the township remain financially sound, and continuing to make improvements to the Kaneville Community Center. He also wants to encourage residents to attend board meetings and get involved in local government.

“The taxpayers trust us with their money; we must use it wisely,” he said.

Ebert plans to achieve his goals through hard work while serving the residents of Kaneville Township.

Kaneville Township supervisor candidate Alvah Withey did not reply back to the Elburn Herald’s election questionnaire.
