About Orv

United States Marine and Viet Nam combat veteran Orv Brettman knows firsthand the meaning of teamwork, integrity and loyalty.

As a husband, the proud father of four and delighted grandfather of 13, he understands the need for a community with good homes, top notch schools, good jobs, safety and security.

Having worked in the public sector (Federal Aviation Administration), the private sector (Jukes & Shafer), as well as having owned his own business (Realty World Town and Country), Orv knows what it takes to earn a paycheck and sign a paycheck.

As a fiscal conservative, Orv has worked tirelessly as a volunteer on the campaigns of others and served as President of the Village of Carpentersville.  He recognizes the need for – and value of – public service

Since Orv and his wife live in rural Huntley, he values the open spaces and natural beauty.  As a lifelong amateur astronomer he appreciates the dark skies which make star-gazing possible for our residents
