Terry Hoeft was a colorful guy, having served as Huntley Village Trustee and being an unsuccessful candidate for Village President.
At the Huntley Village Board meeting his recent death was announced.
Here you see him at the 2009 Grafton Township Annual Meeting seeking to have the 2008 minutes corrected to read that a Planning and Visioning Committee be appointed and convened “prior to construction.”
Hoeft had been elected moderator of the 2008 Annual Town Meeting.
His passion, however, seems to have been 4-H in general and the Huntley Harvesters in particular.
A 2002 village resolution honored him when he was one of the first recipients of the Larry Fischer Leadership and Spirit Award for being a
- Ambassador coordinator,
- fair superintendent and
- livestock auction committee member and was also instrumental in
- establishing ’4 the Harvest of Tomorrow’ a fundraiser dance which enabled the Extension to fund numerous 4-H projects, events and scholarships.”
He took conflict of interest seriously, as this information to the McHenry County State’s Attorney upon his election as a Huntley Village Trustee shows:
“I am the president of T.J.H Contracting, an excavating firm, and I have done work for the following companies: The Prime Group, Plote, Bernant and the companies that they have sold property to. However none of the work was related to Village improvements. I have had a working relationship with Plote since 1976. I have made a decision on how to handle this situation so that there is no conflict of interest. “
