Fox River Grove voters have a tough choice among five qualified candidates seeking to fill three open seats. Incumbents Michael Ireland and Suzanne Blohm are seeking re-election while newcomers Thomas Anderson, Andrew Migdal, Robert Kandler and Chester Olencheck have also joined the ballot. Ireland, Blohm and Migdal are endorsed. Ireland brings a passion for the board and Fox River Grove with a savvy eye on the big picture. Blohm has done an excellent job on the finance committee and will continue to serve voters well. Migdal stands out among the newcomers. He brings the perspective of a local business owner and, while he has strong feelings on specific issues like driveway paving, he realizes his role as a leader is to put his personal opinions aside and make decisions that are for the good of the whole. He should be commended for stepping up and trying to be a part of the solution. He has attended village meetings and educated himself on village regulations. He'll be a solid addition to the board.
