Here’s an issue that has not popped up in McHenry County.
DuPage County Board members are members of the Illinois Municipal Retirement System.
So are McHenry County Board members.
The Daily Herald reports that the IMRF pension which members can qualify for is an issue in DuPage County, where Board members get about $50,000 in salary for the part-time job.
In McHenry County, the salary is about $20,000.
The resulting pension is not huge…unless a County Board members manages to score a much high salary in, say, an elective office. Then the years at the lower salary county a lot.
And, who do I have to thank for pointing me to this article?
Dave Diersen, who prepares at least a daily list of articles he thinks might be of interest to Republicans.
