A press release from Republican McHenry County State’s Attorney’s candidate Patrick Kenneally:
Commitment to Tax Payers: Patrick Kenneally to Cut State’s Attorney Budget 10% By the End of First Term
Patrick Kenneally has announced that he has begun the process of reviewing the budget with an eye toward reducing the budget 10% by the end of his first term.
“As a candidate fully committed to the principles of the political party I represent, instituting a balanced approach to saving taxpayers money is one of my top priorities.”
One of the first things Patrick Kenneally has identified is the Office’s use of County cars.
Currently, the State’s Attorney has eight cars assigned to it.
Gas and maintenance for these cars costs the County over $25,000.
Patrick Kenneally will cut the number of cars in use and costs by more than half.
The only Office staff that require cars are Office investigators to use while conducting an investigation or serving a subpoena.
All other cars will be returned to the County for sale or reassignment.
