An article by Charlie Wheeler in Illinois Issues contains the following sentence:
“As candidate filing this week officially kicked off campaign 2018, one might suspect that Rauner’s new mantra is, ‘Vote for me because I’m not Mike Madigan.'”
I continue to contend that the Jack Franks-inspired bill, House Bill 171, would make the McHenry County Board Chairman, a Democrat, more powerful in his legislative body than Mike Madigan is in his.
That’s because Madigan only has the power to appoint chairmen and place Democrats on committees (or not, as Scott Drury, discovered).
By signing State Rep. Reick’s petition, you let Governor Bruce Rauner know he should veto HB 171.
