David "Boog" Kreher
Education: 2 yrs. at BAC
Previous offices: Current Village Trustee
Qualifications: I am a current Trustee on the Village Board
Top issues: Hiring a new police chief, that will bring stability and continuity to our police department. Working with Army Corps of Engineers and the other govermental entities to assure our levee gets accredited. Working to try to draw more new business to the village to complement our new Dollar General store which opened in 2012, and the new Casey's Store that is due to open in April of this year. Continue working to abate derelict buildings and run down properties, to clean up the village and prevent property values of homes in those areas from losing their value. Monitor the new sewer plant construction, and in these times when state and federal monies are not going to be available to the village as in the past, it is very important that we tighten our belts and monitor all spending from all village funds.
