Bravo, Hebron Village Board Trustee Drew Georgi. Thank you for standing up and showing us there is reasonable, responsible leadership in Hebron.
By now, you’ve heard the most recent tale in Hebron Village President John Jacobson’s growing list of drugs and alcohol incidents. Jacobson was arrested on drug and firearms charges after police said they found cocaine, drug paraphernalia and a shotgun and ammunition at his home. Two of the charges are felonies. Jacobson was elected village president in 2013 despite facing crack cocaine charges during the campaign.
“If he doesn’t resign voluntarily, I’m going to try to get the other board members to restrict him, restrict his powers, limit him,” Georgi said, apparently defying some sort of unofficial gag order placed on trustees and the village clerk by senior Trustee Mark Shepherd.
Jacobson must go. If he won’t resign, then a plea deal that stipulates a resignation or a felony conviction can remove him from office. If that doesn’t work, Jacobson can be voted out next year.
Maybe Drew Georgi is willing to run for village president.
