To the Editor:
I unreservedly endorse Steve Andersson for state representative in the 65th District.
Steve has been a close friend for 16 years, and I know him to be forthright, honest, intelligent, thoughtful, persuasive and effective. His professional career is built around working with communities to maximize their economic vitality and success. Myriad public officials with which he has worked have lined up behind Steve, not because of politics, but because he brings a rare and valuable insight and thoughtfulness to his work.
He was elected twice and has served diligently on Geneva’s library board. With Steve as treasurer of that body, he – along with the rest of the board – was the only area taxing body to actually lower their tax burden while maintaining public services.
Regardless of one’s political stripe, we are all aware of the political dysfunction which taints our legislative bodies. Steve Andersson is part of the solution. I encourage everyone to participate in the GOP primary election this March 18 and help elect Steve Andersson to the Illinois House of Representatives to help get Illinois back on track.
