Previously elected office: None
Relevant community service: 8 Years President Oswegoland Sugar and Spice
22 years civil engineering. I’m the only candidate that has been certified by the state on documentation, therefore I am the only candidate who can produce information on a moments notice on any FOIA request. I spent 22 years as a resident engineer for thirteen government entities and provided them the expertise that allowed them to improve their infrastructure and protected them from any misappropriation of funds. I worked with Local, State, and Federal agencies to procure monies, prosecute road projects, and close them out financially under the guidelines that are issued by Federal Government. I have been scrutinize by State and Federal agencies on proper documentation and construction methods. I was one of the first “RE’s” in Cook County that was in charge of the shovel ready jobs called “ America’s Rehabilitation and Recovery Act.” (ARRA) As a result I was visited by agents from Washington that scrutinized my work favorably.
I will be available by multiple outlets for consultation. I will be able to produce any information requested by FOIA and the board of trustees.
Before I can give you specifics I need to examine how the services are being prosecuted.
If you are elected, what do you believe should be the Township’s top 3 immediate priorities?
