This is a letter to encourage those of you who cannot decide whom to vote for to seriously consider Chris Lauzen for Kane County Board Chairman.
His business acumen as a Certified Public Accountant has made him an excellent businessman who knows how we get the money, how we spend the money and how it is saved and how it gets lost. Personally, I have to be sure that is the reason he saw a need to be in the Illinois General Assembly years ago and made the decision to be elected. He made it and has been a grand representative of the 25th Senate District.
Chris has led by his principles -- down-to-earth principles that keep money instead of spending it just because you happen to have it. He has had to explain why he has voted no on some otherwise good bills because the other side put a clause here and there that would have spoiled a good bill. He saw that it would be greasing somebody's palm and he would have none of it. He has taken a lot of flak for that type of thing over and over again.
I believe Chris knows the subtle difference between standing on his principles and compromising to accomplish a good for the public. He has the discernment and intuition to know which way to decide so that the outcome benefits his constituents -- not himself or his colleagues.
I urge all of you to vote for Chris Lauzen for Kane County Board Chairman. He will conduct himself as honestly and as forthrightly as he has as state senator. He will work with Kane employees and see their needs as others before him have not. He will consider the department heads' needs and respond with careful deliberation.
Mary F. Sharp
