Letter: In support of Chris Lauzen

If you Google the words, “Chris Lauzen,” you will get 184,000 results. And I am not surprised. Chris has impacted more lives and devoted more positive energy to public service than anyone I know. A graduate of Harvard Business School and Duke University, and a Certified Public Accountant, Chris Lauzen has the business skills to… Keep Reading

Letter: Thank you to Frasz, Transportation Department

Not very long ago—late April 2015—a few concerned staff members and parents of Kaneland High School reached out to Kane County Board Member Drew Frasz. As the Transportation chair for Kane County, Mr. Frasz was suggested to us by our superintendent for Business, Dr. Julie-Ann Fuchs. Dr. Fuchs has been a vital part of the… Keep Reading

A response to a previous letter

My name is T.R. Smith, and I’ve served on the Kane County Board since 2010. I am more than a little upset about a letter that was published in the Elburn Herald, criticizing Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen. Years ago, I remember sitting next to the kid who wrote the letter (Mark Vargas) at… Keep Reading

Letter: Glass: to recycle or not to recycle?

Within the past month or so, many Waste Management customers in unincorporated potions of Kane County received an email from Waste Management that asked them to start putting their glass into the trash instead of the recycling. After that email went out, I received quite a few calls from concerned residents who wanted to know… Keep Reading

Letter: A response to a previous letter

My name is Terry Hunt, and I am the Kane County Auditor. A recently published letter to the editor of the Elburn/Sugar Grove Herald included so many factual errors that I believe it would be a disservice to the public not to set the record straight. I am unquestionably qualified to serve as the Kane… Keep Reading

Letter: Service vs. serve-us

One of Chris Lauzen’s top three priorities as chairman of the Kane County Board is to treat people respectfully. Seems ironic for a man who has spent a career alienating himself within his own party in Springfield as a state senator, and the last three years viciously attacking fellow Republicans at home as Kane County… Keep Reading

Letter: Why am I running for Kane County Auditor?

The recent articles in the Daily Herald about the auditor’s belated discovery of supposed credit card abuse by county employees and elected officials is just one of many issues that have plagued the Auditor’s Office. While only the last fiscal year was evaluated, the alleged abuse has gone on since the current auditor was elected.… Keep Reading

Thank you from ECFPD

A big thank you to all who came out to our Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District (ECFPD) open house. It was a fabulous afternoon and would not have been so without the generosity of all our community members, friends, family and colleagues who were in attendance. A special thank you to the American Legion… Keep Reading

Letter: A note regarding PARCC test scores

The local PARCC scores were recently released. As State Superintendent Dr. Tony Smith emphasized when the statewide results were released, this is a completely different type of assessment than we’ve ever had and these results simply set a baseline. In addition, PARCC standards are internationally benchmarked. Previous tests were benchmarked against state standards, and this… Keep Reading

Letter: A letter to District 302 families and staff

The winter holidays are fast approaching. This week, our students and staff will be wrapping up projects, performances and celebrations before break. It’s a busy time of year for our learning community and we appreciate the support and involvement of our parents and community. Before we break for the holidays, we want to also provide… Keep Reading

Letter: Thank you and congratulations

Congratulations to the officers and staff of the Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District on their new headquarters and training facility, and thanks for hosting a well-attended and successful open house on Sunday. Even a day of rain didn’t “dampen” the crowd’s enthusiasm. Also, special congratulations to Alan Isberg on his retirement and his many… Keep Reading

Letter: A salute to Sugar Grove Veterans Park

Something just very special is now part of our Sugar Grove Community: the long anticipated Veterans Park, with specifically dedicated stones in honor of veterans by their Sugar Grove relatives and families. I personally saluted my dad Al Wulff—Major, U.S. Army, 1942 to 1945—while also joining on the stone with my years in the U.S.… Keep Reading

Letter: A trustee with training

On last Tuesday evening, I was traveling to Elburn to attend the Elburn Lions Club spaghetti dinner. While in the car, we witnessed a head-on collision at the corner of Bunker and Keslinger roads, just outside Elburn. Luckily, the person in the vehicle with me is a very active member of the Elburn CERT program,… Keep Reading

Many thanks to all the downtown businesses that were open for families to enjoy some holiday hot cocoa, goodies, crafts, bingo, soups, beautiful nativity displays,… Keep Reading

Letter: Thank you to County Board, Forest Preserve

As County Board chairman, I would like to thank each member of the Kane County Board and each commissioner of the Forest Preserve who once again voted to freeze the property tax levy for running Kane County government. This means that for the fifth year in a row—for half a decade—Kane County government will not… Keep Reading
