The Kane County Chronicle had a story Saturday telling of Board Chairman (and now GOP State Senate candidate) Karen McConnaughay’s making public campaign contributions by potential contractors prior to County Board approval.
For two years, those wanting county business have had to fill out forms telling
- owners of the company,
- names of lobbyists who have been used, plus
- campaign contributions to county officials
I don’t know if such information is posted on the Kane County web site, but that would be a good idea.
On additional bit of transparency might clarify zoning matters.
Might it be relevant to know whether the applicants and their attorneys had made contributions to any county officials?
