Letter: Further outrage regarding Jordan dismissal

I feel I must add my voice to the growing crowd of unhappy local customers outraged over Old Second Bank’s poor decision to terminate longtime local branch manager Margie Jordan. Me thinks maybe there’s more to this than meets the eye, what with the laughably improbable benchmark of signing up 20 new accounts per month… Keep Reading

Letter: In defense of first responders

Forty-six years ago I returned to Illinois from my active duty service, which included Vietnam, only to be met by jeers and accusations such as “baby killer” when I wore my uniform.

Letter: Frustration with Jordan’s dismissal

I am writing this letter to express my frustration with Old Second Bank (O2). Recently Margie Jordan, the branch manager at Kaneville O2, was terminated after 22 years of service.

Letter: A thank you to voters

A simple thank you seems inadequate to express my gratitude to everyone who supported my re-election to the Elburn Village Board. Whether you voted for me or for the other fine candidates, I promise to work diligently to keep Elburn that special place we all love. Bill Grabarek Elburn Keep Reading

Letter: In opposition of certain School Board candidates

I’ve been following the Elburn Herald letters section prior to the Kaneland School Board election, and have really appreciated, in particular, comments made by Laura Furco of Sugar Grove and Dennis Ryan of Elburn regarding Tony Valente, a current Kaneland School Board member and candidate for re-election. Ms. Furco pointed out that board member Tony… Keep Reading

Letter: The real meaning of public service

Is it public service or politics that bring people to run for office to serve their community? When a person takes office, for whatever slot, it should always be to serve the public,not have the public serve them. As we look at the numerous offices that are being selected in this April’s elections next week,… Keep Reading
