Frank Wedig, the man who ran for McHenry County Board and received 1,412 votes in Dorr township, is trying again.
This time he is running for Dorr Township trustee.
The local Republican Party voted to have a primary election, but the only candidates who filed were the Republican incumbents.
Scratch the primary.
Here is what Wedig has to say:
“I believe the number one issue for Dorr Township is transparency.
“The Township web site, although useful, could better inform residents about what is happening with their tax dollars.
“I advocate including more practical information regarding property taxes and appeals.
“The posting of all township expenditures – an open checkbook – would promote confidence in the government.
“All information regarding the relocation of the Dorr Township office to a larger facility should be posted on the web site.
“The fiscally and environmentally responsible solution would be to find an suitable existing structure. A long-term rental agreement should also be considered.
“The Illinois Green Party stands for, in part, grassroots democracy.
“I also believe in openness and accessibility in government.
“I am a fiscal conservative, and am anxious to bring a progressive voice and innovative ideas to township government.
“In office, I will work to:
- Use your tax dollars responsibly
- Propose that the township formulate an opinion to the McHenry County Board on zoning changes being considered within the township
- Encourage conservation design techniques in township projects
- Add alternatives, besides the construction of a new building, to the discussion for new Dorr Township Offices.”
