I live in the Historic District. I have known Ian for a number of years. Ian is someone you can count on to do what he says he’s going to do. He’s an engaged listener and always provides thoughtful feedback. I trust these traits will serve the community well if he is elected to the City Council.

Being “smart” doesn’t automatically make a person a leader. Rather, good leadership comes from a person’s understanding and personal connection to a place. I have repeatedly watched Ian’s non-stop learning from his work on the NCTV Board to his active Chamber of Commerce leadership. He is always working to build a concensus to move in the right direction. He is a true Naperville leader. That is why we need his voice on the City Council. We need him for us.

I live in Saybrook. Ian and I met in September to discuss his decision to run for City Council, and our conversation covered the pandemic’s effect on our city. I believe Ian Holzhauer will work for the public health and safety of our citizens as well as for our businesses. If our city officials encourage residents and businesses to adopt and consistently use the best practices advocated by science and health officials, public health will be restored, and a return to wealth for local businesses will follow. I’m pleased to support Ian Holzhauer in his campaign for a seat on the Naperville City Council.

When I had the privilege of being a judge for the Naperville Chamber’s Four Under Forty Award, I met Ian, which was shortly after he had gotten out of the military. At the interview, it was quickly apparent that Ian’s candid and honest approach to our questions set him apart as an individual who demonstrated the characteristics we were looking for, in addition to the numerous examples of his community leadership, business acumen, and passion for his family. He obviously became one of our award recipients. It is a joy knowing that Ian is continuing to use his gifts to serve Naperville!

As a newly-minted, young physician, I moved to a house in downtown Naperville in the first week of January. Then, as we all know, 2020 happened! These were challenging times both professionally and personally. Not knowing anyone around here, I reached out to Ian via social media asking him for guidance on various fronts, including how to contribute to the city. He is easily approachable and guided me with his knowledge of Naperville. Most of all, he is humble and always willing to help. These are signs of a good leader! I support him because he is both a young, dynamic leader and a wise, experienced, and knowledgeable leader all at once.
