Please join us on June 30th for a fundraiser in support of our re-election campaign for the 19th Kane County Board District.  

During the Primaries the Democrats ran three candidates for the seat, a sure sign that they are targeting us for a possible pick up.  What they don’t realize is that over the past 6 years we have not only fulfilled our campaign promises, but we continue to make Kane County stronger through sound fiscal planning and reason.  We fought high property taxes by living within our means keeping the county's tax levy to roughly 5% of your tax bill.  We have increased transparency by posting all county transactions online.  We have created jobs while bolstering our transportation infrastructure, improved roads, reconfigured traffic patterns and built bridges both physically and metaphorically.  We continue to make a difference in the lives of our residents on a daily basis.  

With your help we can continue to lay the foundation for a brighter future for our families.  Won’t you help us continue our mission?

 No one likes to sit in traffic, so Kane County is being especially proactive in addressing current and future traffic concerns through our FY2018-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) - many of which are located either in or adjacent to the 19th District.  The main county maintained north/south throughway in the District is Randall Road, which is getting quite a bit of attention in the approved TIP.

Memorial Day means more than just an extra day off, a big car race or even the unofficial start of summer.  It is a day of reflection when we remember and thank those who gave their lives in service of our country.  Our hearts go out to the over one million brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, and to the families they left behind.  May God bless and keep you all.

Ever since the Chief Judge identified (though begrudgingly) the electronic monitoring program as her office's means to cut the required 3.25% from its budget in 2017, we have had quite a bit of misinformation out there.  Some coming from members of the County Board, others coming from the candidates hoping to be elected to the County Board, and still others who simply wish to offer opinions on Facebook, Twitter and so on.  Enough phillonious information has made its way around the web, that I thought we would take a moment to clear things up.  Here are five points to remember...
