  1. Finally a worthy GOP candidate for Illinois Treasurer.

    We need to work hard to overcome the “good old boy and girl” support for the other GOP guy who voted for same sex marriage and is also running for Treasurer.

  2. More photo ops for do-nothing jobs. “Qualities of Leadership, Service Cooperation..blah, blah, blah”

    Can anyone tell me what the McHenry County Auditor does to win this “award”?

    lots of phony hype, phony awards,I think.

  3. Re: “Can anyone tell me what the McHenry County Auditor does to win this “award”? ”

    Is ‘trakker’ another fine product of our public education system?

    My read of the post is interpreted as an award for the DuPage auditor.

    If ‘trakker’ wants to observe on of the stated reasons of the award he / she may want to visit the DuPage county web site. http://www.co.dupage.il.us/CountyBoard/AppointiveBodies.aspx#ACT_Transparency_Portal
    and http://www.co.dupage.il.us/Auditor/Checkbook.aspx

    McHenry County citizens would be well served if they had the same information available on-line.

  4. The State Treasurer is responsible for accounting and tracking incoming state revenues.

    In addition to being a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Bob Grogan is also a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE).

    When elected, Bob Grogan will be the first CPA/CFE ever elected to state office.

    Think about that, a state office holder with professional training and experience for the job.
