One thing everyone seems to agree upon is that property taxes are too high here in Illinois.  The solutions to high property taxes, however, are typically where opinions differ.  Kane County directly accounts for roughly 5% of your total property tax bill, meaning that for every dollar you spend on property taxes the County receives a nickel.  So what value are you getting out of your nickel?

With my name being at the bottom of letters going out to residents in unincorporated Kane County attempting to explain the energy aggregation program, you can imagine I have received a handful of calls from residents inquiring more about the program.  While I have attempted to address everyone's concerns individually I thought it might be prudent to post some of the information here as well.

 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.

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?

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.
