Struggling township

To the Editor:

I am writing to support Grafton Township supervisor candidate Pam Fender.

The township election in Grafton is critical as we work to move forward. Pam is a longtime local leader and volunteer with the exact combination of compassion and experience that our township desperately needs.

Pam is experienced in local government, serving as a Huntley village trustee since 2005. Pam held this elected position during critical years – population growth, Route 47 widening, a new Centegra hospital and full Interstate 90 interchange.

Pam has been honored for her service by both the chamber of commerce and the Huntley Park District. Pam founded the Huntley Fall Fest, which has grown in seven years to be a large, three-day festival. Pam also was instrumental in helping the Grafton Food Pantry find a new location.

For the good of our struggling township, please consider supporting Pam Fender.
