Naperville incumbent looks to keep costs under control
Naperville City Councilman Kevin Coyne vows to ease voters’ sticker shock for utilities and other services if he is re-elected on Tuesday.
“I believe in consolidating government services and sharing costs,” Coyne said in a Facebook post. “We need better control the cost of government.”
The candidate’s plan is to find synergies with other government branches, such as combining the maintenance of unincorporated highways between Naperville Township and the city of Naperville.
A Cedar Rapids, Iowa, native, Coyne has served on Naperville's Fair Housing and Planning and Zoning commissions, as well as practicing law in the city for more than a dozen years.
“I’m committed to spending my next term in office working hard to make sure Naperville remains one of the best places in the country to settle down and raise a family,” Coyne said.
Coyne is running for one of four spots on the board against Michael Leland Isaac, John “Johnny” Krummen, Judy Brodhead, Julie Berkowicz, Kevin Gallaher, Benny White and Michael Strick.
