With a full interchange at I-90 and Rt. 47 on the verge of being completed in 2013, Huntley is bracing for tremendous growth opportunities. Incumbent John Piwko has been a solid leader helping to guide the interchange project to completion. His priorities for the Kreutzer Road extension and sidewalks in the village to maintain a small-town feel and keep the village walkable will help Huntley retain the charm it boasts on welcome signs. Challenger Ronda Goldman has an infectious passion for the village, a balanced view on growth and her experience with the historical society would be an asset as the village speeds toward the future. J.R. Westberg, another challenger, also has his eye on maintaining the historical character of the village, and also on maintaining a safe environment for raising a family. Jay Kadakia, who is running for his second stint on the board after leaving in 2011, has valuable experience especially with water issues, but at a pivotal time for the village, we think the combination of Piwko, Goldman and Westberg provides the most promise.
