Letter: Harris is Honest, Approachable, Current, Informed

Mar 23, 2015 03:56PM, Published by Steven Jack, Categories: Opinion




I have known Mr Harris for the last 2.5 years, since my family moved from Orlando, FL to the Chicago area.

We quickly became friends, and our entire families get together regularly. It truly is my pleasure to know him. During the time we have known each other, I have been a witness to the love and passion he has for God, his family, his friends, and the community.

In the friendship that has developed between our families, I have come to admire and respect his humble character and wise approach to life. I have also seen Mr. Harris be a protector and provider to his children, loving and faithful husband to his wife, and caring and available neighbor to his community and friends.

Last year, my wife Nancy was injured at home while I was away at work. Mr Harris and his wife, without hesitation, worked as a team to take my wife to the hospital, watch my kids and ensure she was ok until I was able to make it back home.

My family has definitely been at the receiving end of his generosity and kindness. We are grateful for their friendship. Mr. Kevin Harris is undoubtably a leader among his peers. In my experience, he has proven himself to be honest, approachable, current, and informed.

He's a man of integrity who loves his family. I trust him and I believe in him. Kevin Harris would be an extremely valuable addition to the District 308 County Board of Education.
