It’s not news that State Rep. Mark Beaubien (R-Barrington Hills) has a liberal social agenda.
So, it was not a surprise when a mailing from the Illinois Family Institute, an organization that has a conservative social agenda, should find one of his votes with which to disagree.
It’s his “Yes” vote on Senate Bill 1716, which concerned civil unions.
IFI equates civil unions with “same-sex marriage,” as you can see from the flyer that arrived in my mailbox.
The mailing was misdirected because, while Beaubien represents part of McHenry County, he doesn’t represent m the part in which I live.
