Local Candidate Profile: Dave Vericker

 My name is Dave Vericker. I have been married for 24 years to my wife Angie. We have 2 children - Shanan who is in her last semester at St Francis Nursing School in Peoria and Dylan who is a senior at Metamora Township High School. We have lived in Metamora for over 10 years. My wife and I both work for Caterpillar. I am a Project Manager in Mossville and my wife is in Human Resources at both East Peoria and Mapleton.

 I was appointed a year and a half ago when a trustee resigned. I have chaired the Future Buildings Committee since being appointed. I have managed many projects and supervised in several areas of Caterpillar. I have a Bachelors Degree in International Business.

 The reason my wife and I moved to Metamora was for the small town atmosphere and the quality education that both Metamora Grade School and Metamora Township High School offered. Our family enjoys knowing that our neighbors will be there if we need them and we are there for our neighbors if they need anything.

 Since being appointed I have started looking at the future of our village's needs. We need to start updating our public buildings, Firehouse, Public Works, Police, and Administrative building. A good 5-10 building plan would allow the village to upgrade these building without having to put the village in a huge debt. We can save and seek grants. I have no personal agenda. My agenda is to put the needs of the village first.
