Endorsement: Sirabian for Buffalo Grove clerk

Success - Article sent! close

By The Daily Herald Editorial Board

If there were a credible alternative to incumbent Janet Sirabian for Buffalo Grove village clerk, we'd be inclined to consider it.

Despite her long service to the community, a case can be made that the minutes Sirabian takes of village board meetings should be more detailed and that the care she provided for tape recordings of executive sessions was so nonchalant that it bordered on being unprofessional.

That said, she remains a superior choice to Rob Sherman, a local gadfly whose biggest claims to fame have been his self-styled spokesmanship of American Atheists and being taken to court on charges of abusing his son.

We've read Sherman's account of Sirabian's remarks in their meeting with our editorial board, and it makes us wonder: If he misrepresents that discussion, would we be able to trust the accuracy of his village board minutes?

Janet Sirabian's not perfect, but she wins our endorsement.
