To the Editor:

I would like to take the opportunity to inform the voters of Sugar Grove about an excellent candidate currently running for the position of Sugar Grove township supervisor. Curt Karas has lived in Sugar Grove for about 26 years. His concern for the community he lives in is stellar.

I have known Curt Karas since childhood and have had the privilege of watching him grow up. He was a Boy Scout for many years and earned the distinguished Eagle Scout Award at the age of 15. As a young man, Curt earned a triple major from Carthage College in accounting, business and marketing. In 1985, he received the title of certified public accountant from the University of Illinois, and in 1993 earned a master's in business administration from Northern Illinois University. 

Not only does Curt’s education qualify him for this position, but his service to the Sugar Grove community does as well. He was treasurer for the Sugar Grove Methodist Church. As a young father of John and Alex, Curt was the head coach in the youth football program, coached youth T-ball, and youth baseball for many years. He was a Cub Scout leader for four years, and as his children grew older became a coach for the seventh-grade Kaneland football team. During the years his son, Alex, attended Marmion Military Academy, Curt was a member of the Dad’s Club.

Curt has his own accounting business in Sugar Grove (Curt John Karas, CPA, MBA, PC) and provides accounting, tax, payroll, business and investment services to businesses in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Florida and Colorado.

Rarely does a candidate come along with the intelligence, education, integrity and drive that Curt Karas has. If you are looking for a candidate who will efficiently and effectively manage the operations of the township, review property tax assessments and be a good steward of your tax dollars, vote for Curt Karas.
