DuPage County Prepares for Re-Apportionment

Each DuPage County Board district has three members.

You’ve read about how the Democrats in Springfield are going to try to eliminate the deficit voters inflicted on their congressmen and women in the 2010 election.

Concurrently, Mike Madigan and John Cullerton will be trying to perpetuate their control of the Illinois General Assembly for another decade.

Reapportionment also occurs for county board members and the Republican DuPage County Board is reported to have taken a first step.

That board has authorized paying up to $125,000 to the law firm of Schirott, Luetkehans & Garner.

According to the Naperville Sun article, the firm has given most of its campaign contributions to Republicans.

Newly-elected DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin seems to be at odds with the remap committee, seeking two-member districts, rather than the current three-member ones.

The committee is also planning to listen to an unnamed University of Illinois professor.

  1. Cal, I really enjoy the blog. Keep up the good work.

    I’m not sure that the money being spent is worth it at this point… $125,000, when there are already big budget issues at-hand, doesn’t seem like money well-spent.
