To the Editor:

We have had the good fortune to live in the DeKalb community for many years, and have witnessed its growth and the many changes as its landscape has moved from rural to cosmopolitan. 

Over these years, there are many folks who have stood out as pillars in our community.  One such person is John Rey, who now seeks our support as he campaigns to be DeKalb’s mayor.

We commend all four candidates who are now running. To Ms. Groce, Mr. Jacobson and Mr. Verbic – thank you for stepping up and taking on the challenge of a mayoral campaign.

We believe that John’s experience and his long commitment to quality of life in DeKalb makes him stand out, and we wholeheartedly support his candidacy.  As a matter of fact, we are eager to host a dinner later this month, at the Hillside Restaurant, to allow others to meet and hear John as the campaign reaches its conclusion. Please visit John’s website, www.johnreyfordekalb.com, for information on the dinner. We hope you’ll be able to join us.

Regardless of your intentions, we do urge you to exercise one of our wonderful privileges – please vote on April 9.
