Bogart the best choice


DANVILLE — Editor:

I have had the privilege of working with Nikki Bogart for the past eight years, first during her tenure as a Vermilion County Board member, and the past several years in her current position as financial resources director for Vermilion County.

I also have the honor of calling her my friend and that’s why I am confident Nikki is the right choice for Vermilion County recorder of deeds.

Nikki has had many years of experience with county government and understands what it means to balance a budget, decrease expenditures and increase revenue. Each year she has spent untold hours working with office holders, department heads, county board members and taxpayers to ensure that Vermilion County turns out a budget that we can be proud of, all during a time of extreme financial burden.

She knows what it means to be a Public servant and will dedicate herself to building on the strong foundation set by past recorders.

She will continue to look for ways to better serve the residents of Vermilion County, while conserving taxpayer dollars, as she has done for several years.

Her administrative experience both in the public and private sector will serve the Recorder’s office well.

If you want an officeholder that will “Put Vermilion County first,” every day, then please join me in voting for Nikki Bogart for our Vermilion County recorder of deeds on Nov. 6.
