Linda Busha received a plaque from the Village of Sturtevant recognizing her work on behalf of the village for the nine years she served as a trustee. Busha chose not to run for re-election.


Incumbent Trustees Jayme Hoffman and Gary Johnson were sworn in Tuesday along with returned Trustee Daryl Lynaugh.

Lynaugh had been on the board but lost to Hoffman in 2012. He unsuccessfully ran for both village president and trustee in 2013 but was returned to the board in the April 2014 election.

Former Trustee Linda Busha chose not to run for re-election, but she attended the board meeting Tuesday so Village President Steve Jansen could present her with a plaque recognizing her years of service.

“Linda has set the bar high as the head of the Beautification Committee, and we will be challenged to meet that,” he said. “I knew when I asked her all those years ago to fill the seat of a trustee who was stepping down that she would fill a void in our village, and she really has.”

Busha helped create and then lead the Community Events, Beautification, and Cultural Committee and has been the driving force behind the annual fireworks fundraising efforts. She is a Master Gardener and recruited her fellow gardeners to help establish the community garden at Village Hall and to help keep the parks attractive and pruned.

In his comments Tuesday, Jansen noted all the work that goes into putting on the various events area residents have come to expect.

“Linda’s job has not been easy, but we will band together and recruit additional members of our community to be our partners, and we’ll do okay,” he said.

Busha said she appreciated the kind words.

“Thank you to all of you for your work, too,” she said. “I encourage you to keep building on the events the community loves.”

Busha is hanging around, though, to help finish the 2014 fireworks planning and then she plans to become just another member of the committee.

“I’ll still help out,” she told Racine County Eye earlier this year. “But it will be up to someone else to take the reins.”
