In a statement to Burns and his supporters, Brady said, “I am honored to be working with Mayor Burns as he seeks to be elected chairman of the Kane County Board.”
In speaking of Burns’ qualifications, Brady said, “Kevin has the unique combination of executive experience coupled with a deep understanding of the operations of local government. This will allow him to hit the ground running as Kane County Board chairman.”
Brady, of St, Charles, added “Equally, if not more important to me as a Kane County resident, is that Kevin is a leader and a consensus builder; someone with the ability to work with and listen to the opinions of others in implementing sound public policy decisions as we strive to reach our shared goal of continuing to make Kane County the finest place in the state to live, work, and raise a family.”
Burns welcomed the chairman’s endorsement and support, and said, “I am honored that Pat Brady has signed on to my campaign team. His leadership, guidance, and friendship are wonderful assets, and I look forward to working with Chairman Brady as our campaign moves forward.”
