Editorial: Rogina for St. Charles village president
One of four candidates will usher in a new era of leadership in the city of St. Charles. The city is generally well-run and, like other communities, trying to stave off economic problems by making good choices in the board room. Voters have a cross-section of solid choices with each candidate possessing a unique set of qualifications. Jotham Stein, familiar with the mayoral race, brings a level of negotiation know-how that could be beneficial when getting the ghost town known as Charlestowne Mall back on track. Jake Wyatt, with limited involvement in city politics, has a deep background in business and the armed forces and shouldn't be logistically challenged when it comes to leading large groups of people. John Rabchuk's civic involvement is to be admired, though his experience seems limited in crafting consensus in a group setting when tax dollars are on the line. Ray Rogina is in his first term on the city council. We like that he doesn't always go with the flow (see his "no" vote on the recent Lexington project) and that he has thoughtful, researched opinions. Further, Rogina has well-researched opinions backed by true give and take with constituents. He promotes, above all else, fiscal stewardship. We think he'd best keep the city moving forward. Rogina is endorsed.
