The Illinois legislature has been in recess for a couple of weeks.
Returning to Springfield today, State Senators are facing the possibility of hiking income taxes back to the Pat Quinn-Mike Madigan days or worse.
Consider the following disconnect from Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno, in the Chicago Sun-Times on January 27th:
“We’re going to have to come here and take some hard votes…
“There’s going to be a lot of pressure on us when we go home, on you from certain elements on us (Senate Leaders) from certain elements.
“Don’t succumb to that.
“We need to do this together for the good of the state.”
If you are one of those “certain elements” who would like to express your opinion, here are McHenry County’s State Senators:
- Pam Althoff, 217-782-8000, 815-455-6330
- Karen McConnaughay, 217- 782-1977, 847-214-8245
- Dan McConchie, 217-782-8010, 224- 662-4544
