The Northwest Herald has an article today about attempts by Algonquin Township Trustees driving to Springfield in an aapparent attempt to keep their jobs.
Here’s the first sentence of the article by reporter Ed Komenda:
Algonquin Township officials traveled to Springfield on Wednesday to lobby against a bill that could make the path to township consolidation easier.
Can anyone tell me what’s stated incorrectly?
The answer may appear in tomorrow’s NWH correction section, but, in any event, will be revealed on McHenry County Blog tomorrow.
The article focuses on how Algonquin Township tax dollars are being used to lobby against State Rep. David McSweeney’s House Bill 4637, which has passed the Illinois House.
McSweeney labels the Township Trustees “taxeaters,” a term originated by Republican State Rep. CL McCormick from Southern Illinois in the early 1970’s.
HB 4637 is now in the State Senate. It remains in the Assignment Committee.
Those reported on the trip are Trustees David Chapman, Rachael Lawrence and Melissa Victor.
