Gottemoller Makes Robo-Call

And, here it is, thanks to a Friend of McHenry County Blog, who recorded it, rather than interrupting the Chicago Blackhawks game:

Joe Gottemoller

Joe Gottemoller

“You hate you hate high taxes.

“I hate them too.

“This is Joe Gottemoller, your McHenry County Board chairman.

“For the past three years they’ve reduced the county taxes and I’ve reduced the number of County employees by 15%.

“Collectively tax payers in McHenry County with save more than $10 million.

“If you support lower taxes and smaller government, press one and a small yard sign will be delivered to you.

“If you’d like to be removed from future calls, please press five.

“On March 15, your vote for your county board chairman for the first time.

“I hope my record has earned your vote.

“Thank you and have a nice evening.

“Paid for by citizens for Joe Gatemoller.”

Another voice: “Press five to be removed from future calls.”

It is interesting that Gottemoller uses three years’ results to promote his candidacy. He has been County Board Chairman only a bit more than one year (14 months + the days of February), so what ever happened during the last three years can be attributed to his predecessors–Ken Koehler in 2012 and Tina Hill in 2013 & 2014.

The budget under which the County operated last year was passed before Gottemoller was sworn in as Chairman.

  1. Re: “I’ve reduced the number of County employees by 15%. ” LIE!!!!

    Remember it is legal to lie on campaign literature.

    HE COST US TAXPAYERS A LOT OF MONEY WITH ALL THE COMMITTEES HE CREATED TO GIVE THE BOARD MEMBER FROM CRYSTAL LAKE taxpayer funded PUBLICITY FOR HER ESTABLISHMENT CAMPAIGN AS A STATE REP CANDIDATE!

    The reason for the decline in employees: Departments have had their budgets tightened due to pressure from the taxpayers!

    The County Board continues to approve union and non union wage increases. There is only one way to increase wages and operate with a flat budget: FEWER EMPLOYEES!!

    We are in a mess at the State level due to voter approval of guaranteed public sector pensions.

    The voter approval of the election of Chairman at large in this County was another major error which will result in higher taxes!!

  2. Seems like there’s a lot of “hate” in Joe Gottemoller.

    Hmmm.

  3. I’m surprised he didn’t trot out the ‘spectacularly inept’ comment… remember the one when he responded to Walkup about the ‘minority’ reformers taking over the board.

    The same people he would have to ‘get along with’.

  4. Let us not lose sight of the fact that ambulance chasing trial lawyer Mike Walkup is a Democrat who has been rejected by the Republicans in Nunda Township and his own precinct.

    Time to eliminate all the Rats.

  5. To sleepy MCBOT member Joe:

    What about the 41 Million in illegal excess reserves at Vally Hi which you have taken no initiative to return to McHenry County taxpayers and in fact approved the levy for Valley Hi each year you have been on MCBOT knowing or not knowing excessieve funds in the Tens of Millions of Dollars were on hand.

    As an attorney, had you done minimal legal research (which I have provided on prior blogs) you would have recognized years ago, taxation at Valley Hi had moved from one of a legislative function to that of illegality when reserves exceeded 2x annual operating expenses.

    Your “deeds” do not match your “words” regarding excessive taxation.

    Based upon the Valley Hi illegal tax debacle which MCBOT refuses to fix, neither MCBOT members and attorneys

    Gottemoller nor Walkup is qualified to be MCBOT Chairman.

    That is why I intend to leave this slot on my ballot blank and will send out a letter to VBH residents in McHenry County for them to do the same.

    McHenry County Taxpayers, we can do better than Gottemoller and Walkup.

    We need a true reformer of McHenry County government and taxation. Unfortunately, judging by their deeds at present, there is no one on the MCBOT board who fits this description.

    No more watch dogs panting on the sidelines lets elect people of action. . . .
