I have been a life-long resident of Blackberry Township and currently serve as the Highway Commissioner in Blackberry Township. I have never had the need to write a letter to the editor prior to the experience I had last week while in Elburn.
As I was leaving a local gas station, I was asked, â€œWhy would Dave Anderson leave the position of Blackberry Township Supervisor and run for Mayor of the Village of Elburnâ€”a position that would pay about half of what he is currently making?â€
My response was simple, having worked with David for the past 12 years. I said, â€œIt has never been about the money with Dave. It is about public service.â€
Working with Dave has truly been enjoyable and I will miss his leadership and forward thinking. The village of Elburnâ€™s gain is the townshipâ€™s loss.
