Huntley Board of Trustees
My experience and knowledge as a former Huntley Village Trustee will help me continue my goals for the Huntley community. In addition I was a member of the McHenry County Groundwater Task force and participated in the formation of the guide lines for the protection of ground water. I am a member of the McHenry County Council of Governments and its two sub-committees, namely transportation and the Northwest Water Alliance, representing the village of Huntley for several years. And as a retired EPA engineer, I was responsible for approving water treatment plants and improvements all over the State of Il. This gives me valuable insight to the quality and quantity of water in aquifers in McHenry County.
Family is what drives me to stay involved. I am married with two beautiful daughters and I want to make sure they grow up in a safe and quality environment. I am currently serving on the Village of Huntley Planning Commission board, as well as I am a very active volunteer within the community such as the Huntley American Legion, Trinity Lutheran Church of Huntley, Huntley Area Jaycees, Huntley Fall Fest and Christmas in the Square. Through the leadership roles that I have held within these organizations, I have gained the experience and knowledge of what it takes to get the job done. Huntley is a great place to live and I would like to continue to support our high quality standards. Given the opportunity to serve as Village Trustee, I can make a difference to keep that quality. I will work hand in hand with all residents to make positive, forward thinking decisions for the future of Huntley.

What experiences do you have that make you a good candidate for office?
I have been a Trustee for the past 6 years. I have learned a lot from the Village staff which I feel has made me a better trustee. In addition to this experience my involvement with the various groups in the Village like the Huntley Little League and St Mary’s Church allows me to talk to other people and get their point of view on the issues at hand.
Being with them allows me to get a feeling of what the rest of the Village residents want done.
