  1. No study of Boards by McSweeny and the State Legislature nor study on consolidation by Jack Franks and the State

    Legislature will resolve our spending problem in Illinois.
    We have five major problems:

    1. Power of the public sector unions – we need right to work legislation or at the least, cease and desist from government unit collection of union dues – let the union members pay directly to the union.

    2. Prevailing wage laws which inflate the cost of taxpayer funded projects – eliminate prevailing wage laws. Yes, I know there is veteran group which is going to advertise that prevailing wage laws help veterans. But those prevailing wage laws are forcing thousands of other veterans into untenable living conditions. That group, btw is primarily supported by an avowed socialist.

    3. Public sector pension Constitutional guarantee – we need a referendum this November to eliminate it.

    4. Right to strike by teachers – we need to end the practice of holding our children hostage to achieve ridiculous pay levels for teachers. Along with this, school districts should be restricted as to how much they can spend on administration.

    5. Government has grown totally out of control. McHenry County is a classic example.

    Background: The increase in regulatory costs to build an average single-family home in 2016 compared to 2011 has risen 29.8 %.

    National Home Builders have placed a price tag of $84,671 on the cost of regulations to develop a lot and build a home.

    A new NAHB study shows that, on average, government regulations account for 24.3% of the final price of a new single-family home.
    The consequence of that and some other factors in McHenry

    County has all but eliminated single family home construction in McHenry County.

    As a consequence, P and D does not have much work.

    What does P and D management do? Work on convincing the Board members that it should take over the handling of homeless people!!

    Current Board membership is so foolish and irresponsible, I would not be surprised to see it happen!!
