Kendall County residents gathered outdoors on a recent Saturday to show support for Brian DeBolt, a Plano resident and candidate for Kendall County Board District 1 in the Nov. 3 election.
DeBolt and his family organized an old-fashioned campaign trail caravan, originating in Plano and venturing to Yorkville that morning. Attendees were able to sit in their vehicles and listen as they practiced social distancing.
“The goal was to give some of Brian’s biggest supporters a chance to address the great citizens of Plano and Yorkville in an environment that was carefree and safe during times of COVID-19,” said Becky Nelson, an event organizer.
Keynote speaker Tim Campbell, a Plano native and Plano School District 88 Board president, announced his endorsement of his childhood friend, DeBolt.
“Brian listens,” Campbell said of DeBolt. “He is one guy that you can come to the table with and he will listen and do what’s best for the county and the taxpayers of this county.”
DeBolt spoke of his years with the Little Rock Fox Fire Department and how he continues to serve the fire district as a trustee. He also shared his service with both District 88 and Yorkville School District 115, highlighting budgeting strategies which have saved the districts millions in construction and maintenance costs over his close to 40 year career.
“We are excited to see a conservative candidate join our Kendall County Republican lineup. Brian offers this community loyalty and discipline. We are pleased to have him throw his name in the hat!” said Jason Hudson, Kendall County Republican precinct committeeman, who was present for the occasion.
With just a few weeks left before election day, the DeBolt Campaign team is looking forward to visiting the rural communities of Millington, Millbrook, Newark and Lisbon. The campaign trail caravan will travel to Newark at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 17.
Brian DeBolt for Kendall County Board Caravan will be parked in the S&K Construction parking lot at 904 E Route 71 in Newark. DeBolt encourages all attendees to practice social distancing and/or wear a mask if necessary.
