Mike Walkup Campaigns for District 3 Seat, Compares Tax Cut Leadership on County Board with Tax Hiking Democratic Opponents

As Jack Franks’ anti-Mike Walkup mailing was being delivered, a positive piece from opponent Mike Walkup was also hitting mailboxes from Crystal Lake to McHenry.

It did not mention Franks, Walkup’s opponent for the McHenry County Board Chairmanship.

It touted Walkup’s positive attributes and asked votes to compare

Walkup’s have led the fight to cut county government’s taxes by $3 million by zeroing out the Valley Hi Nursing Home tax levy, thus cutting the county government property tax levy from $79 million to $76 million with

Cathy Bergan Schmidt’s having voted to raise the county tax levy while she served on the County Board and

Diane Johnson’s having voted to raise Crystal Lake taxes while she served on the Crystal Lake Grade School District 47 School Board.

Mike Walkup points

Mike Walkup points to “roots, character, values and vision” on the address side of his mailing, which promotes his candidacy for the McHenry County Board Chairmanship.

The back of the mailing compare Mike Walkup's cutting of taxes on the County Board with the tax hiking records of Democratic opponents Cathy Bergan Schmitdt and Diane Johnson.

There seems to be an error in the mailing.

While Cathy Bergan Schmidt did vote to raise property taxes four times (twice one year when a change in her vote would have held the tax levy constant), in her last year in office, when Scott Breeden was Chairman of the Finance Committee, she voted with the majority in favor of the tax levy, which was reduced.

  1. Mike is the CLEAR choice for those who pray for lower taxes.

    He’s the ‘MAN’

    The other guy is nothing but a phony flunky of the the biggest tax hiker in Illinois history ‘Mikey Madigan’

    For a full report see: http://www.lyingjackfranks.com/

  2. Totally convincing.

    Umm, have they studied whether mailers work anymore?

    If they did, is it the same people who want you to advertise in the telephone book or newspaper?

  3. He is creepy and looks like a weasel. Oh thats right he is a weasel. He is democract using the republican party as he has hijacked the party and is the biggest rhino out there. He says he is a tax fighter he cannot even show up regularly for meetings let alone committee meetings. He only shows up when it is convenient for himself or a good sound bite when running for chairman spot. He has bad hegine and most sit away from him as he can tend to smell like a wild animal. Cindy the reason it is a nice picture is because it is touched up by photo shop. He usually is wearing a old t-shirt and grubby shorts or pants that fit the same. He has no shame and is not a representative of any body but himself. No thanks Ill take Franks any day over this rhino republican who has no accomplishments what so ever.

  4. It is a GREAT PICTURE of Mike !

    His strength of character and
    Intelligence come shining through !

    Ignore the REAL WEASELS and the CRAP they
    Are trying to sell, Mike .

  5. YO Josey seeetheart:

    Pull up your dress and bend over once more for Socialistic Whore that you are.

    What was it you said the other night … God bless Marx.

  6. How is he going to fulfill the duties given the fact that he has an “allergy” to ink, or paper, or whatever it is?

    Will the County need to buy him a Chairman’s laptop..?

  7. Walkup has pointed out that the laptop the County provides (all County Board members) allows him to do his County Board work.

  8. Mike Walkup wrote in the comments section on the blog the disability is due a chemical sensitivity.

    When a large quantity of paper is present in an enclosed place, the paper chemicals cause an asthmatic reaction.
