I want to express my deep gratitude to you, this remarkable community, for your support during my campaign to remain on the City Council.   At coffees, knocking on doors, and even chatting at the train station, you reminded me why it is a privilege to serve in Highland Park. With your tremendous engagement and thoughtfulness, I am confident we will continue to work together to make Highland Park an even better place to live, work and do business.   

 Please join me in congratulating Alyssa Knobel and Kim Stone.  I look forward to working with Alyssa and Kim, along with Mayor Rotering and my other fellow Councilmen, to improve the daily lives of our residents and enhance the quality of life in our community.  Congratulations as well to Carolyn Cerf, Bill Dytrych and Bob Crimo on their campaigns.  I know they are dedicated residents who also are focused on moving Highland Park forward.

Dan Endorsed by Patch Columnist in ’13 Highland Park City Coucil Election

I am happy to report that today Ed Brill, Patch columnist, endorsed me in my bid to remain on the City Council. Here is the endorsement:

In my opinion, Kaufman deserves to be re-elected. It still feels to me like Kaufman is a reluctant politician, looking at his time on the Council primarily as altruistic civil service. Highland Park insiders frequently describe Kaufman as the “behind the scenes guy,” helping the Council and staff understand legal requirements and implications, and shaping the right legislation and policy. If indeed this is his role, then he is worthy of returning for another term.
