I’ve known Tom Lupfer professionally for over 10 years. He is a respected colleague and we have become good friends.

Our work together at the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association has given me an insight to how Tom works on Boards and Committees. First, he takes a critical look at the issues, sees what needs improvement, and then works hard to make a difference, often times bucking the system and challenging the status quo. This results in real progress, progress that I have personally witnessed and appreciated.

So when I heard that Tom was running for Riverside Township trustee, I could only imagine that he would be an extremely effective advocate for the residents of Riverside Township.
