That’s what the Chicago Tribune is reporting.
And the DuPage County Board members are going to increase their take by 2% each of the next two years, too.
Only two people voted, “No.”

For those in office, this pension benefit cannot be stopped because of a clause in the Illinois State Constitution that says an elected official’s compensation cannot be changed during his or her term.
