Under the story I wrote on the effect of the U.S. Supreme Court;s “hands off” decision of legislative re-mapping, someone said with all Republican representing McHenry County in the Illinois General Assembly McHenry County did well.
I beg to disagree.
Something over 100,000 people are in each State Rep. district.
With over 300,000 residents, that means McHenry County deserves at least two members of the Illinois House.
We only have one–Steve Reick.
So, I would ask those who think under Mike Madigan’s 2010 map, with the input of State Rep. Jack Franks, to re-consider their opinion.
