Fuesting for West Chicago Ward 7

By Daily Herald Editorial Board

Like most communities and individuals these days, West Chicago has had to do some belt-tightening. The city has cut the budget around 5 percent in each of the last five years, including paring 6.8 percent for the current year's budget. The city has moved strongly to privatization and streamlined where possible, yet managed to put two more police officers on the streets and adjust officers' shifts to increase patrols during the busy evening hours. Incumbent Matt Fuesting, who has represented Ward 7 since 2006, has played a role in the changes as head of the city's finance committee. While keeping an eye on the city's bottom line, Fuesting can envision a new municipal campus anchoring a downtown revitalization. Fuesting is endorsed for a second full term as Ward 7 alderman over newcomer Graig Neville, who could use more time to develop a deeper understanding of duties and reach of the city council.
