Dave Tilley wants to be Spring Bay's Next Mayor

Dave Tilley wants to be Spring Bay's Next Mayor, Metamora Herald

I am 51 years old, married 5 kids 4 Grandchildren. I have resided in Springbay for 4 years now. I grew up in Germantown Hills and went to Metamora High School, graduating in 1985.
I work as a Nurse at OSF, I am a volunteer EMT on the Springbay Fire Department, I also teach the EMT classes there, and I am a Combat Medic SGT with the Illinois Army National Guard. I have 17 years of combined active duty and national guard time.
John McCarty, our previous mayor, served the village of Spring Bay for many years and we all will feel that loss. I want to try to improve our village for our residents by applying for federal and state grants to improve infrastructures such as roads and sidewalks. I also want to help clean up the village as some properties are in a state of disrepair and pose health risks and lower property values. I feel that we could use the beautiful parks that we have to add a Frisbee golf course and use the parks for concert nights during the spring and summer months. I would also like to bring back our annual watermelon festival to bring the community together.
