Only the good quit young!

Say it ain’t so Don! Three terms is only supposed to be the beginning.
I’m sure you’ve all heard that St. Charles Mayor Don DeWitte will not seek a third term this spring. While I can certainly understand his need to move on – I can barely sit through one city council meeting without falling into a deep coma – his leaving does not make me happy.

Don DeWitte

Why is it that folks like DeWitte quit while they’re ahead, but you can’t “kill” nitwit Kane County politicians like Karen McConnaughay, Sue Klinkhamer, Bill Foster, Jim Oberweis, Mike Kenyon, Pat Brady, Jim Hansen, Beth Goncher, Tim Schmitz, Cathy Hurlbut, and so many others with a wooden stake and a gallon of holy water?
Where’s Buffy when you really need her?
Don’t get me wrong, hizzonor wasn’t perfect, he did hold on to some grudges too long. But he also harbored that too-rare tendency to put the best interest of St. Charles before his own self interest.
I’m sure we haven’t heard the last from Mayor DeWitte, but all you St. Charlesians better start praying that Sue Klinkhamer, or God forbid, Jotham Stein, don’t run again. Either one will  set the city back another 40 years.
