Endorsement: Weihofen for Lakemoor mayor

Success - Article sent! close

Some view Lakemoor as an out-of-the-way hamlet west of Volo resting sleepily at the borders of Lake and McHenry counties. Others view it as a town that is primed with boom potential, an opportunity waiting to happen. It is, in fact, both. Its market location and its natural blessings make Lakemoor both a good place to live away from the maddening crowd and a likely magnet for development. Planning is the key to all of that, the key to managing as well as maximizing that growth opportunity. Frankly, no stronger argument can be made for the re-election of Mayor Ryan "Todd" Weihofen, who has done an outstanding job in his first term in bringing professionalism to a village government operation that had, at best, been seat-of-the-pants previously. Weihofen's leadership has strengthened Lakemoor's reputation and set the village on a path to planned growth that should make every resident proud. He has earned our endorsement and the electorate's vote. He faces one opponent on the ballot: Tina Asmus, an enthusiastic but inexperienced alternative. He faces another opponent as a write-in: Trustee Kimberly Beach, who has made herself so oddly inaccessible to us that we wonder whether she's really running. Weihofen's been good for Lakemoor. Re-elect him.
