Naperville councilman Kevin Coyne gives no quarter and has had enough of both the Illinois Democratic Party and the DuPage County Republican organization and wants to be the voice for conservative principals by standing tall, and making a difference for change.
Coyne decided to throw his lucky penny into the ring and make a run for the 2020 DuPage County Board election in District 5. After serving on the Planning and Zoning Commission, Coyne was elected to the Naperville city council in in 2015 and re-elected to a four-year term in 2017 with his current term ending in 2021.
Coyne seeks to replace James Healy who has been on the county board since 1996, that’s 23 years, that’s enough. Can anybody think of anything Healy has accomplished other than getting re-elected. Keeping Healy on the board, doesn’t make any ‘cents’. Coyne, an attorney, wants to put his two-cents worth in and fight for pro-life and government reforms including reducing the size of government, reducing real estate tax levies, and most importantly supporting the Second Amendment and our constitutional right to bear arms.
He is a financial conservative which is exactly what taxpayers need. He’s open-minded to change if the evidence supports it, and he can turn on a dime if necessary. If taxpayers and residents had a dime for every conservative position Coyne has taken, it would amount to a huge mountain-size pile of silver dollars.
Coyne’s quarter-back leadership skills are powerful including demonstrating accountability, maximizing relationships, building trust, thinking critically, driving change and demonstrating courage, all of which were evident last February when he called out state rep Anne Stava-Murray, D-Naperville to resign after she said the City of Naperville has ‘white supremacist policies’. Coyne said her outrageous comment was a new low for ‘ugly rhetoric’
Coyne can’t lose, which means taxpayers and residents can’t lose. He either gets elected to the DuPage County Board saving taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, or he remains on the Naperville city council and won’t nickel and dime residents. Every penny he pinches benefits those he is elected to represent.
