Incumbents Rick Montalto and Robert Bohler both have had success in helping to shape village policies in Sugar Grove, and they have used their life experience to benefit residents. As more commercial development is sought, Bohler's expertise in the corporate world as president and CEO of his own manufacturing firm is an asset. His common sense approach to politics and desire for smart, environmentally responsible growth stands out. Montalto's experience with emergency services has helped develop programs and plans the village needs for large-scale events like the Solheim Cup. Although a newcomer to this race, Gayle Deja-Schultz is no stranger to politics, having worked with state legislators and engaged in community activism in Sugar Grove. Her knowledge of the issues and passion for community service would be an additional asset for the village. Challenger Sean Herron has an admirable desire to help the village move forward but lacks the experience the other three candidates possess. Challenger Stephanie Landorf did not respond to requests for an endorsement interview. Bohler, Montalto and Deja-Schultz are endorsed.
