...earn your respect. For someone who truly cares for your community, look no further.

 

"Moving to Village of Campton Hills had a journey within itself, but it’s safe to say the area brought me and my family joy to have a small piece of the American dream, and not be lost in an overdeveloped community development."

 

Once he jumped into the fray, Morgan saw running for office in this tight-knit community wasn’t going to be easy, and the fact the town’s offices were closed for COVID protection surely didn’t help.

 

By the time he navigated through all of the proper documentation required to run, the deadline was past, so he had to enter as a write-in candidate. It also triggered a primary election because previously the current trustees were the only candidates for the office.

 

Problems with zoning and other issues motivated Morgan to run for office.

 

“When I moved there, I began to look at the community, and in September of 2019, the township tried to rezone my property and several others to residential without even having a public meeting," Morgan said. "That’s when I could see that there needed some new blood and I felt as though I could use my background and experience to help.”

 

Morgan reaches out to help the community in many other ways, by helping families in need with gift cards, working with the Adopt-A-Highway Program, and assisting the local community in getting a K-9 officer for law enforcement.

 

While many people wait for their lives to change, Morgan makes things happen, and helping both animals and people will always be on the top of his list.

 

“There are new challenges all the time and as we get through this pandemic, there will be more,” he said.

 

Saving pit bulls and playing a leadership role in his community are Morgan’s passions. What are yours?
