The voters in Kane County Board District 21 have two fine choices in the race to succeed Rebecca Gillam, who is not running for re-election. Democrat Tara Jacobsen of Dundee Township is a political newcomer, having recently retired from a career in "professional problem-solving" as a nurse and system manager in the Cook County health system. Republican Clifford Surges is an insurance professional, a member of the District 300 education foundation and a former Gilberts village board member. We give the nod to Surges for his municipal experience but encourage Jacobsen to pursue elected office again at the township or school district level.
