Opponents to McHenry Township road District Consolidation Run Half Page Ad in NWH — 4 Comments

  1. The ad didn’t give any good reason to vote no.

    BC there is none.

    I will not vote to save Jim Condon’s overpaid job, I will vote YES to this referendum

  2. I don’t live in McHenry, but I’d vote to consolidate. That’s a no brainer.

    Illinois has way, way too many useless layers of taxing bodies.

    “As we have reported before, Illinois has around 7,000 units of local government. A lot of taxpayer dollars could be saved if we reduced that number — a conclusion that, not surprisingly, has been reached by Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti, who more than two years ago was appointed by Gov. Bruce Rauner to study the situation.

    Now, it’s time for the General Assembly to act on it.

    The consolidation of many of these small units of government and sharing of services would accomplish another Rauner objective that we agree with — property tax relief — a goal he emphasized repeatedly during his January State of the State address, citing Sanguinetti’s report.

    The huge number of local government is, in part, why Illinois pays the second highest median property tax rate in the country.

    Most of the reduction in these units can be realized by doing away with redundancy, overlap and duplicate administrative costs.”

  3. I don’t get the ad.

    Are they saying they don’t tax as much as schools so what they take is OK?

    Who paid for this?

    Township vendors?

  4. The referendum has nothing to do with Jim Condon’s job.

    The consolidation would not take place until after the 2021 elections.
