Who Are We?
The Independents for Sugar Grove Village Trustee (ISGVT) are concerned residents of the village of Sugar Grove, Illinois. ISGVT is endorsing a slate of candidates for the three Village Trustee positions up for election on April 2, 2019: Jennifer (Jen) Konen (write-in candidate), Heidi Lendi (incumbent, ballot candidate), and Ryan Walter (write-in candidate). None of them is a politician, but all of them believe that ordinary citizens must serve in local government for it to effectively represent the views and interests of the village’s citizens. All ISGVT candidates are long-time residents of Sugar Grove, and each would bring a unique professional background to their service. We are respectfully asking you to honor them with your vote in the upcoming election.
Why Is ISGVT Endorsing Candidates?
The recent proposal to rezone land in our village to make way for an 8 million square foot warehouse and distribution complex has made it clear that important decisions are now upon us. The Village Board, comprised of its Village Trustees, is ultimately responsible for approving or denying a rezoning request such as this. ISGVT is supporting candidates for Village Trustee to ensure that the interests of all Sugar Grove residents are considered when such decisions are made.
What Do We Stand For?
- Rejection of any development proposal that does not adequately reflect the legitimate interests of Sugar Grove’s current residents
- Opposition to the creation of any tax-increment financing (TIF) districts that are not in the best interests of our taxpayers and governmental bodies
- Commencement of a review of the village’s Comprehensive Plan (Ordinance 2018-403C) that meaningfully engages with all stakeholders in the community to arrive at a truly shared vision for our village, as was done in the past
- In all matters, providing an independent voice that asks tough questions and makes fact-based decisions for the long-term that are fair to all of the village’s stakeholders
