The Chicago Tribune continues to put pressure on the Naperville City Council to remove the fringe benefits that council members receive.
This time the Chicago Tribune article is about health insurance for the $12,000 a year, part-time elected officials.
The issue was also brought up during the McHenry County Board’s Republican Primary Election campaign.
The most vociferous, District 1 challenger David Stieper, ran third in a three-way race.
He argued that the $20,000 a year County Board members should not receive health insurance or pension benefits.
Steiper was endorsed by both the Northwest and Daily Heralds.
The Tribune article ran April 3, 2014.
