Kane County Circuit Clerk Endorsement
I have been amazed at the cooperative effort by our judicial partners....Although I could tell you amazing stories about each...I want to highlight the Circuit Clerk's office. Tom Hartwell, Monica Lawrence, Karin Herwick and their staff...Despite calling them every day and at times it seemed every hour - I never heard the words "we can't" "we won't" or "that's going to be very hard". Instead it was "ok", "we will start working on that right away" or "I have another idea."
Prairie Winds in St. Charles invited Tom Hartwell and other Kane County Candidates to a meet and greet event on March 6th
Kane County Circuit Clerk Tom Hartwell was presented with a commemorative plaque on May 17 in recognition of cooperation in offering driver safety classes to the 16th Judicial Circuit.
The recognition was presented by Lesa Norris, dean for workforce development at Waubonsee Community College, and Dennis Schmidt, driver safety manager at Waubonsee.
“This driver safety program is a valuable service to the public and to overall highway safety,” Hartwell said in the release. “It has been our pleasure to support this popular program and to continue an effective educational program in cooperation with Waubonsee Community College.
“More than 8,165 residents participate in the program each year. And this program not only improves understanding of traffic safety, it also helps lessen the burden on our county’s crowded court system.”
