Sugar Grove, IL (March 8, 2021) – Today Independents for Sugar Grove Village Government (ISGVG) announced its endorsement of James "Jamie" White for the office of Sugar Grove Village Trustee in the upcoming Kane County Consolidated Election on April 6, 2021. A resident for more than 20 years, ISGVG believes that White’s legal experience in the area of real estate development combined with his extensive roots in the community will provide valuable guidance as Sugar Grove looks to chart its course in the coming years. Mr. White currently serves as a member of the Sugar Grove Planning Commission.
Mr. White 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
"As a member of the Village Planning Commission, I've had the honor of helping to ensure Sugar Grove develops in a manner consistent with its character. As a Village Trustee, I hope to continue that service while encouraging development that expands our tax base and provides my fellow residents with additional retail options that so many are requesting," said White.
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."
