It has been less than a year since Rick Peck took over as Kaneville’s interim village president. He was chosen by his peers and deserves an opportunity to serve a full term. “It’s been a great experience so far, and I want to continue forward,” he said during an endorsement interview with the Kane County Chronicle Editorial Board. Peck was selected to be interim village president after the death of Bob Rodney in July. Prior to becoming interim village president, he served as a Kaneville trustee. Both Kaneville village president candidates – Peck and Trustee Pat Hill – are leaders and have demonstrated a desire to do what’s best for Kaneville. Both recognize the need for new sidewalks in town, and both say they will strive to maintain the village’s small-town identity. Hill is highly involved in Kaneville and is well known as the owner of Hill’s Country Market – also called “the Purple Store.” She has served as a trustee since 2006 and has lived in the area for 17 years. Peck is an engineering manager and has lived in the area for nearly nine years. We endorse Peck.
