Letter: Groce will be ‘game changer’ for DeKalb

To the Editor:

Game changer. That is how I describe Jennifer Groce.

I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Jennifer for many years. I have found her to be an extremely hard worker, a good listener and an excellent thinker. Her tireless energy, consistently positive outlook on life and passion for the residents
of DeKalb is evident to all who know her.

One of her greatest attributes is her ability to lead and bring people together to achieve a common goal. The public improvements made to downtown DeKalb were achieved ahead of schedule and under budget thanks, in large part, to her efforts when she was the executive director of Re:New DeKalb. 

Like every community, DeKalb has its challenges. However, we have many opportunities. We need a mayor who will make difficult decisions based on community input and reasoned thinking. We need a mayor who will lead the fiscal management of our city in a prudent and disciplined manner.  We need a mayor who will work with businesses to bring career paying wages to our community. 

We need a mayor who will commit the necessary public resources to improve public safety within our city. We need a mayor who will continue to improve the relations with Northern Illinois University as we all work for a better DeKalb. I believe Jennifer Groce is that person.

Leadership is not easy, but having the right person in the right role is vitally important to any organization and community. Jennifer is that right person.

Please join me in voting for Jennifer Groce to become the next mayor of the City of DeKalb on April 9. Thank you.

Frank Roberts
