Carpentersville Fireﬁghters Announce Endorsements for Village Trustees: Garcia, Miller and Scholl

Carpentersville Fire Fighters Local 4790 and a prominent local businessman have announced their endorsements in the election next month for village trustees.
Following interviews with all trustee candidates, village firefighters and Tom Roeser, President and CEO of OTTO Engineering, recommend the election of Humberto Garcia, Sara Miller and Christopher Scholl in the April 7 village election. The three are seeking four-year terms to the Carpentersville Village Board of Trustees.
The firefighters and Roeser based their selections on the candidates’ qualifications and their dual commitments to public safety and expanding business opportunities within the village.
In announcing their preferences, firefighters and Roeser cited their reasons for the endorsements:
“The firefighters and Mr. Roeser believe now is time for a change to shape the village’s future. Mr. Garcia, Ms. Miller and Mr. Scholl expressed new ideas to challenge the old ways of doing business.
“Humberto Garcia, a west side resident and business owner, sits on the audit and finance committee. He understands what it takes to work together and make things happen with his background in the audit and finance committee and from his business dealings.
“Sara Miller, an ‘old town’ resident and small business owner, identifies with what most Americans want in government: a fresh, new look with no political ambitions except what is best for the community. She is eager to get involved and offer solutions to many of the village challenges ahead.
“And Christopher Scholl, a firefighter and east side resident, has promised to change the status quo approach to governing. His background in public safety and the honesty that comes with the job will hold everyone to a higher standard. The shrinking abilities of all village services have caused great concern for him and his family.
“The people of Carpentersville deserve a fresh approach to government and the integrity that these three candidates will bring to the job.”
