Natkins has perfect experience for Huntley

Updated 4/6/2021 1:45 PM

In the race for village of Huntley trustee, the best candidate and most deserving of your vote is Burt Natkins.

Burt has a long history of community service, both in a volunteer and an elected capacity. Throughout his adult years he has relocated a few times and has always sought out a way to serve where needed.


About three years ago, life brought Burt to Huntley. He approached village officials who appointed him to the village's Historic Preservation Commission, based on his work with historical groups. I am chairperson of that commission. I was amazed at Burt's talents and abilities from the beginning.

He is able to sit back and listen and be one to take a leadership role.

When he joined our commission, we were reviewing the wording of our ordinance. As an attorney, Burt was most helpful in structuring sections and phrasing of the document so that the meaning was the same, but the content was easily understood to the lay person.

As a former elected trustee in the past, Burt is aware of the needs of a town. He has experience balancing as aspects of a community's needs.

Burt realizes the village of Huntley has done a great job governing our community in recent years, but he would like to step up and offer his skills to Huntley's residents.
