Roland Burris Remembers McHenry County

While his senior colleague United States Senate Dick Durbin ignored McHenry County in his requests for appropriations’ earmarks, Roland Burris did not.

Here’s what Burris requested:

$500,000 for McHenry County, Illinois Drinking Water Quality Initiative McHenry County, Illinois McHenry County Government Center 2200 North Seminary Avenue Woodstock, IL 60098

Why this is a good use of taxpayer funds: McHenry County would use the federal funds to assess the short-term and long-term viability of the drinking water supply.

It is important for folks to realize that just asking for money does not mean that a request from a very junior Senator not running for election will be included in the final appropriations bill.
