Sugar Grove, IL (March 5, 2021) – Today Independents for Sugar Grove Village Government (ISGVG) announced its endorsement of Sean Herron for re-election to the office of Sugar Grove Village Trustee in the upcoming Kane County Consolidated Election on April 6, 2021. ISGVG believes that Herron's experience as a Kaneland School District 2nd grade teacher, combined with his record as a Village Trustee since 2013, provides an important perspective on the impact the pandemic has had on our children’s learning. Prior to becoming a teacher Trustee Herron served for 10 years in the US Army, which included tours of duty in Iraq.
Trustee Herron supports ISGVG's five-point platform for thoughtful progress in Sugar Grove:
- New ideas about Sugar Grove's future, a vision for responsible development, and the will to act upon it
- Commitment to acting upon the results of a review of the village's Comprehensive Plan that meaningfully engages with all stakeholders in the community to arrive at a truly shared vision for our village
- Rejection of any development proposal that does not adequately reflect the legitimate interests of Sugar Grove's current residents
- Opposition to the use of tax-increment financing (TIF) when doing so is not in the best interests of our taxpayers and governmental bodies
- In all matters, providing an independent voice that asks tough questions and makes fact-based decisions for the long-term that are fair to all of the village's stakeholders
"Since 2013 I have had the honor to serve Sugar Grove's residents as one of their Village Trustees. We face a crossroads in our village, and I believe my experience combined with a vision for supporting development that enhances our quality of life is one my fellow residents will benefit from," said Herron.
Jim Huguelet, Director of ISGVG, said "Since 2019, ISGVG is an organization of engaged Sugar Grove residents who believe that ordinary citizens must serve in local government for it to effectively represent the interests of all of the village’s stakeholders. Our endorsements seek to help Sugar Grove voters know who will best represent those interests."
Additional ISGVG candidate endorsements will be announced in the near future.
