Letter: Support Sean Michels on April 9

In reading the candidate profile in last week’s Elburn Herald I noticed that they published all of the school’s that Sean has attended, but did not include the degrees that Sean has worked so hard to earn.

Sean received a finance and an economic degree from Illinois State University. He then went on to Aurora University and earned a Masters in Business Administration.

These degrees, along with the 20 years Sean spent in the banking industry, have helped him manage the multi-million dollar budget of the village. Compare this to his opponent, who has taken course work at the College of DuPage and real estate classes at Waubonsee.

The fact that the village managed to earn an A+ rating by Standard & Poor’s in 2008 is a testament to the financial leadership that Sean has been able to provide with his strong finance background. This leadership included cutting staff by 20 percent and reducing expenses by 25 percent since 2008.

This type of leadership is needed for Sugar Grove. Please vote for Sean on April 9.
