Letter: Restore faith in local government

To the Editor:

Why vote for Tom Hartwell in the upcoming elections for Kane County circuit clerk? Tom stands out as the best choice. The reasons are simple.

Tom is successful in many areas of his life that fit the job requirements. Tom is effective and efficient in business, in community service and as a father of two young sons.

He understands that we can’t spend more than we have, employing a solid budget and looking for sound ways to generate a higher level of efficiency. He listens and leads through positive teamwork.

As a member of the South Elgin Lions Club, a life member of Jaycees, a founding member of the South Elgin Parks and Recreation Board and the Elgin Moose Club, it means a lot to me that our representatives give back to the community, and Tom does that through his church and other organizations. Mr. Hartwell is a successful businessman and a proud, caring father and a volunteer. As I’ve gotten to know Mr. Hartwell, these are just some of the things that have impressed me about him.

I want him on the team that will lead Kane County, so let’s elect Tom Hartwell to help restore faith in our local government.

He is fiscally conservative, with enough experience to implement and maintain a balanced budget while improving the attention to detail so important in an office that maintains county court records.       

I encourage you to vote for Tom Hartwell.
