During a recess in the Crystal Lake Municipal Officers Electoral Board hearing prompted by Mayor Aaron Shepley complaint about opponent Sascha Chadwick’s petition adequacy, I had a chance to ask the challenger why he was running.
Here’s Chadwick’s answer:
- We need to have better open communication with our businesses and residents.
- We need to have better relationships with other government entities, whether it be the school districts or the park district.
- We need to simplify or streamline the zoning process and permitting to encourage people who do business here and want to live here.
Chadwick described himself as an “entrepreneurial accountant.”
He has an accounting practice and runs a property management company.
He, his wife and four children live north of the Colonel Palmer House which is located on Route 176.
Chadwick is 36 years old.
