Letters to the Editor

Letter: Thank you from Keith Wheeler and family

Lisa and I, along with our entire family, are truly grateful for the support we received on Nov. 4. Our campaign theme of creating Illinois Jobs for Illinois Families resonated with voters all throughout the 50th Representative District. As a result, I am honored by the confidence that my neighbors demonstrated by electing me as… Keep Reading

Letter: Thank you from Valerie Burd

I want to thank all the people who helped me during this long year of campaigning, and all the people who voted for me on Nov. 4. Although I didn’t win the election, I did win in many other ways—I made new friends, I learned a lot from all the people I talked to as… Keep Reading

Letter: Thank you from Elburn & Countryside Fire District

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the residents who voted against disconnecting and transferring territory from the Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District (ECFPD) on Nov. 4. The ECFPD has served and protected the lives and property of all our residents for over 132 years, and we appreciate your confidence… Keep Reading

Letter: A response to a previous letter

Mr. Jerry Elliott often writes inflammatory Letter to the Editor submissions to share his concerns about the management of Kaneland CUSD 302, but he regularly includes erroneous information. This is unfortunate because it can mislead district stakeholders, suggesting reckless mismanagement of funds. Nothing is further from the truth. This letter is in response to Mr.… Keep Reading

Letter: Kaneland School Board raising taxes

I had the pleasure of attending the Kaneland District 302 School Board meeting on Oct. 27. The meeting started on time at 7 p.m. sharp, with several people in attendance. Pictures of student athletic participation, pictures of Europe with Kaneland High School students, criteria for selecting a new superintendent and school improvement plans were presented,… Keep Reading

Letter: Fox River’s math just doesn’t add up

Because of the Nov. 4 referendum, the recently formed Fox River & Countryside Fire/Rescue District has been spending a lot of time defending their Fire District in the press. In one of their letters, they stated that “change tends to bring out strong emotion.” They are correct—change can be quite emotional, especially when that change… Keep Reading

Letter: In response to a previous letter

I have made numerous attempts to contact Ms. Denise Klock in regard to her allegations of response times leading to “needless property loss and death.” Due diligence to substantiate her claims have included attempts to contact her by phone, email and certified mail. Certified mail receipt indicates she picked up the letter on Oct. 22.… Keep Reading

Letter: A puzzle that matters

The fire disconnection referendum on the Nov 4 ballot poses a bit of a puzzle, i.e. a “financial aptitude test,” if you will. The issue presents an optical illusion where a proposed change may look smaller or better than it actually is. On the one hand, people of the Elburn area have folks from outside… Keep Reading

Letter: The facts are simple

I have been listening to people talk and reading articles about Fox River & Countryside Fire/Rescue District, and decided to do some research. Personal feelings aside, it’s time to look at the facts. The city of St. Charles was the agency originally responsible for providing coverage for the areas that now belong to Fox River.… Keep Reading

Letters to the Editor

Letter: Simply the facts

Chief Kelly Callaghan of the Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District (ECFPD) recently submitted an article entitled “Vote No to the ‘Hostile Takeover.’” The so-called “hostile takeover” is actually a reference to the resident-initiated petition to disconnect that will be decided by voters on Nov. 4. That petition seeks to disconnect territory from the Elburn… Keep Reading

Letter: Thank you for 31 wonderful years

It is with a heavy heart that I write the following words: Dr. Robert Hansen DDS passed away earlier this month, following an 18-month battle with cancer. I had the honor of serving as his Office Manager for the past 31 years, and I can tell you from firsthand experience that he was a wonderful… Keep Reading

Letters to the Editor

Letter: Let’s get the facts straight

I am writing about the disconnection from the Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District to the Fox River Fire/Rescue Protection District. Having served 35 years on the Elburn Fire Department—the last 11 as fire chief—I believe you should vote “no” if you live in the affected area. Elburn has no debt, has been in service… Keep Reading

Letter: Stay committed to Elburn Fire District

I have lived in the Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District for more than 77 years. I have grown to know the members of our Fire District staff and their families. The department has visited our schools, marched in parades and come to our neighborhood parties. But most of all, when any of us have… Keep Reading

Letter: Previous letter renders several opinions without facts

I read again with interest the letter from Tim Lyons published in the Elburn Herald on Oct. 9. This letter was from an individual identifying himself as a Batavia Fire Department Lieutenant. Lt. Lyons is also reportedly the brother-in-law of Elburn Fire Chief Kelly Callaghan. The letter contained several inaccurate statements and misinformation regarding Fox… Keep Reading

Letter: Dispensing with the myths

I was pleased to read the letter in the Oct. 16 Elburn Herald publication, written by Fire Chief Greg Benson of the Fox River and Countryside Fire/Rescue District regarding the district’s proposed takeover of a significant portion of the Elburn and Countryside Fire District’s service area. In his letter, Benson states, “…we would welcome the… Keep Reading

Vote against Nov. 4 disconnection referendum

On Tuesday, Nov. 4, some of the voters in the Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District will have the option to choose whether to disconnect from the Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District and join Fox Fiver Fire and Countryside Fire Protection District, or stay with Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District as their fire… Keep Reading

Letter: Getting the facts straight

I read with interest the letter from an area resident published in the Elburn Herald on Oct. 2, 2014. The letter contained several inaccurate statements and misinformation regarding Fox River & Countryside Fire/Rescue District. The intent of this response is to provide accurate information. Contrary to the letters’ assertion, the writer has never requested a… Keep Reading
