I am writing in support of the election of Dave Shields to the Normal Town Council. I have known of Dave’s contributions to the community when he served as Normal Planning commissioner, during the time the town of Normal was evolving and attracting major hotels, a modern transportation center, and upgrades to the infrastructure of uptown Normal!
Dave is a 36-year employee of State Farm Insurance, and has served on the Planning Commission since September 2017. Shields has gone on record saying “Normal is a special place, and I’m invested in continuing its pragmatic and progressive legacy.”
Dave Shields knows the community and its people. He serves on the boards of directors for the Multicultural Leadership Program and ISU Friends of the Arts. He was also a founding officer of State Farm’s Pride employee resource group.
I enthusiastically support the election of Dave Shields to the Normal Town Council.
