Letter: Service attests to candidate's character
As a high school teacher and coach in the Northwest suburbs since 1987, I've seen hundreds of people volunteering in park district or "feeder" youth sports programs over the years. Usually they are fathers that volunteer to help out their son's team and once their son is no longer on the team, they quit volunteering. Rare is the man that coaches one of these teams without a son that's on the team.
Mark Mueller is one of those individuals. He has spent 35 years running the HEAA youth football program in Hoffman Estates. He has taught thousands of kids in this community the importance of teamwork, sacrifice, discipline and commitment to a cause. If a family of these kids could not afford to be on the team, he made sure that was not an obstacle. This attests to his character.
He has spent 28 years as a police officer in Hoffman Estates, keeping our streets safe. His commitment to the people of Hoffman Estates is the reason I will be voting for him for village trustee. If you value that type of character and commitment, I urge you to do the same.
