About this Article
Lael Miller and Jerald Bartels, the two men vying to become village president in East Dundee, have similar visions for the town, but come from different backgrounds. Miller, who is challenging Bartels for the seat, works as a commercial real estate agent and says he wants to make East Dundee a better place to live. He ran for office with Trustee Rob Gorman four years ago and is wrapping up his first term on the board. "I think I have more to offer," Miller said during a Daily Herald endorsement interview. "I can do as good a job, or better."
