Sullivan prioritizes Peoria in supervisor bid
As the April 4 election approaches, Republican Peoria Township Supervisor candidate Dan Sullivan continues to promote his platform of safeguarding taxpayer dollars and protecting the poor.
Commitment to efficiency and “customer service” plus two decades of government experience inform the candidate’s approach. He has worked for the City of Peoria and the Peoria County Sheriff’s department and led a local school board for eight years.
In a Facebook post about a week ahead of the election, the candidate recapped his a visit to Peoria’s nonprofit Helping Hands Resource Center. He said he wants to work closely with social service agencies. Promising to approach the job with compassion and professionalism, Sullivan pledged to save taxpayers approximately $16,000 annually by refusing to accept health insurance from the township and use that money to meet community needs, instead.
Sullivan’s appeal has crossed traditional party lines. Pastor Harvey Burnett, a Democrat who was a candidate for supervisor, offered an enthusiastic endorsement of Sullivan in a letter to constituents, which he posted on Sullivan’s Facebook campaign page March 20.
“[Let] me tell you … it was Dan who had the answers and the firmest grasp on what the … Supervisor does,” Burnett stated, adding that he observed that Sullivan appeared to be mentoring other candidates during public forums. “Frank Abdnour and Dan Sullivan are both good people. Dan Sullivan just happens to tower over Frank in qualifications for this particular job.”
