Sandy Robertson, who is the Republican Precinct Committeeman in Algonquin 43 is giving her constituents the following letter:
My name is Sandy Robertson and I am your neighbor and your newly elected recinct Committeeman in Algonquin Township 43. Our local Republican candidates really need your support this election. As I live in this precinct and experience the same ballooning property taxes as everyone else, I ecided to get involved and do something about it.
What is the Republican Party doing? The Algonquin Township Committee
- implemented a NO NEPOTISM policy (1st of its kind in the State of Illinois),
- attempted a Referendum of Tax Relief (successful in Cary and Fox River Grove, but unfortunately failed due to lack of signatures in Algonquin, but we will try again) and
- the committee is currently working on re-writing their bylaws.
We worked hard during the primary educating the voters on the local candidates and the people VOTED OUT a good chunk of the RINOS in McHenry County who acted more like tax and spend Democrats!
All this has gotten the attention of Mike Madigan and he wants to take over McHenry County with his political machine cartel and whip us into submission with his guy JACK FRANKS!
The Democrats by-passed the March Primary by appointing many of their candidates giving the voters NO say.
Jack Franks will follow suit and is already stating that the McHenry County Board Chairman does not have to follow county board procedures to appoint committee chairs and members of boards and commissions!
In the 18 years in the Legislature in Springfield, Franks NEVER passed a bill providing tax relief to the average property tax payer and NOW he says that he is going to cut your taxes by 10% when the County Board Chairman doesn’t even have control over MOST of the local taxing boards (school, city, library, etc.)
DON’T BELIEVE HIM!
Also during his time in Springfield, Franks asked Rod Blagojevich for patronage jobs for TWELVE
relatives and cronies.
LET’S NOT LET MIKE MADIGAN ANNEX McHENRY COUNTY INTO THE CHICAGO POITICAL MACHINE!
VOTE MICHAEL WALKUP FOR COUNTY BOARD CHAIRMAN!
I have enclosed a Sample Ballot with my recommendations for voting (after thoroughly vetting each
candidate) for your convenience. There are also some “yes” and “no” selections which I’d like to
Proposed Amendment to the IL Constitution – I am recommending VOTE NO. Illinois Board of Elections' records show that Illinois highway construction, concrete and asphalt companies are pouring funds into Citizens to Protect Road Funding's effort to change the constitution. (These wolves-in- sheep’s-clothing amendments/bills/etc. always have such nice sounding names, don’t they?) So are construction associations, as well as those that run heavy construction machinery – the International Union of Operating Engineers. With the passage of the constitutional amendment, construction companies will be guaranteed business and revenue forever – or until the amendment would be reversed. First, state employee pensions get constitutionally-protected priority. With the passage of the Safe Roads amendment, road and bridge construction would be next up. Democrats in control of the Illinois Senate and House are most often showered with campaign funds from these organizations and businesses.
1 st County Advisory Question – Regarding reducing the corrupting influence of money on our political system – this is a no-brainer – Vote Yes
2 nd County Advisory Question – Regarding reducing the number of County Board members. You would think that this would be a good thing to save the county money, right? But it is NOT a good idea AT ALL, as it is SO MUCH EASIER to corrupt, influence and/or buy 7 board members than 24 board members and it gives more power to each board member when there are less of them. With the rampant corruption in this state, more board members are better! VOTE NO
New Taxes for the Fire Department – this will raise property taxes. One of the claims is declining property values have contributed to less money. I don’t know about you, but my property taxes have not gone down even though property values did. VOTE NO
Please protect McHenry County and vote for our local Republican candidates. If you have any concerns, questions or want a lawn sign for any candidates, please call or text me at 224-531- 7365.
