Holiday Hills president: Drury

Published: Thursday, March 21, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Voters in Holiday Hills have a tough choice when they go to the polls to elect their next village president.

On the ballot are incumbent Village President Mickey Brown and challenger Daniel Drury. Both seem passionate about their small village and improving the quality of life for its residents.

Brown has the experience to lead the village. She has been village president or a village trustee for all but four years since 1988.

In a village with a small tax base, Brown said her top priority is to find more revenue sources so the village can provide more services for its residents.

Drury is a newcomer to village politics. He is running for an elected position for the first time. He wants to preserve Holiday HIlls’ small-town atmosphere, but make improvements to the village’s services. He thinks the village has not taken advantage of grants that might be available to improve the village’s water and sewer services.

He also wants to make it easier for residents who want to pay to dredge some of the village’s channels, something he says needs to be done.

We endorse Drury.
