  1. Heisler, McCann, Provenzano & Skala:

    Thank you for voting properly!!

  2. What the Hell is wrong with these four people?

    Amen to FYI’s comment.

  3. Let me get this right, Provenzano votes against the raise for the Clerk so he can have a press release to tout his selflessness to ignorant voters (to the tune of $4,000…yippee) but then votes in favor of spending $82,000 on a DC Lobbyist who will be paid to lobby Congressman Hultgren, for whom Provenzano works for as a federal employee AND on his campaign staff?
