Thoughtful leader

To the Editor:

I have had the privilege of working with Tom Anderson, candidate for village trustee in Fox River Grove, on the Fox Rover Grove fire department – he was my lieutenant. Tom understands the goal of leadership – making those you lead successful. At a fire incident, he would do that by using his available resources to safely accomplish the mission. He led us well.

I believe that Tom will bring that same understanding of leadership to the Village Board. Wise use of the village’s resources – finances and people – can help FRG continue to be a good place to live and raise a family. Wise use of resources can also keep businesses in the village and attract new ones.

My wife and I are pleased to support Tom as he seeks to serve our village. He has demonstrated the ability to be a thoughtful and committed leader.
