The Winnebago County Board majority decided that they did not like the power being exerted by it countywide elected Board Chairman.
So, the Board majority took back some of the power the Republican Board Chairman had assumed.
The Chairman went to Federal court and, so far, has lost.
Now comes GOP Board member Jean Crosby seeking five hundred good signatures to put the question on the November ballot of whether the county should adopt a (strong) Executive form of government.
Those who follow McHenry County governance will remember that then-State Rep. Jack Franks put a similar referendum on the ballot.
Now Franks pretty much acts as if the referendum passed.
The Republican Party opposed the referendum.
