Letter to the Editor | Candidate 'is for the people'

I would like to introduce you to Darlene Kloeppel, who is running for the office of county executive.

I worked with Darlene for approximately 15 years. Darlene is an excellent manager who is tenacious and far-sighted. She has a way of gathering people together from many disciplines, always working to complete the goal in a professional and creative way.

For me, her best qualities were her open-door policy and her ability to really listen to staff ideas and critique.

As a leader, she is creative in her methods to reach goals, and she invites partnership.

You have heard the expression, "of the people, by the people and for the people." As a voter, I am big in "for the people" and tired of politics that do not live up to that standard.

I believe Darlene is the best choice Champaign County residents have for an executive who is "for the people," and I encourage you to vote for her in November.
