A commenter made mention of a secret meeting of Republicans and I asked for details.
Turns out the “invitation only” meeting on Saturday afternoon at the Crystal Lake GOP Headquarters (my 1973 State Rep. office) has been posted on the McHenry County Republican Party web site, which you can see below:
The meeting was with Governor Bruce Rauner.
Color me cynical, but I’m guessing there were not many people in favor of the bill to allow abolition of township government by referendum among the chosen few.
Even so, I can’t believe the Governor would be so stupid as to veto such a bill, if it passed.
He has talked too much about the excessive number of governmental units in Illinois.
As with all of his recent visits to McHenry County, to this one the public was not invited.
