Educator should be St. Charles mayor

My wife Ann and I are endorsing Ray Rogina's candidacy for mayor of St. Charles. As a former school administrator in St. Charles, I have known Ray during his entire teaching career. I sat across the table at times of contract negotiations as he was part of the team that represented the St. Charles Education Association. I found him to always be well prepared, articulate, visionary and fair.

During professional conversations, Ray demonstrated keen listening skills and a straightforward manner when discussing sensitive and confidential matters. I believe his presence and engaging dynamics will permit this highly regarded educator to successfully relate to the residents and business community. These qualities will serve him well as the mayor of St. Charles.
