Letter: Support for Grabarek

William C. Grabarek moved to Elburn in 1978. Over the past 33 years, Bill’s contributions to our community have been immeasurable.

As a volunteer leader, Bill has done voluminous work on behalf of Lazarus House, the Fox Valley Wildlife Center, and the Friends of the Town and Country Library. Because of this work, the Illinois Humanities Council honored William C. Grabarek with its Studs Terkel Humanities Service Award in 2006.

As an appointed village official, Bill chaired the village of Elburn Planning Commission for eight of his 10 years of service, culminating in 2003. That same year, Bill was first elected to our Village Board, where continues his dedicated service to this day.

Bill has the commitment, energy and willingness to continue to represent a historical perspective and institutional knowledge of the Elburn Village Board.

When times are tough, I know I can count on Bill Grabarek to preserve Elburn’s past, protect our present and plan for the future.

Please join me in supporting William C. Grabarek for re-election as trustee to the Elburn village board.
