To the Editor:
It’s verbal abuse season again. As some honest people choose to run to be public servants, many people will choose to spew their hatred toward them in a very public way. At the risk of being aligned and maligned with the few servants I have chosen to strongly publicly support, here are the ones I feel need to be supported with our votes in November and why.
• Joe Tirio. I’ve known Tirio and worked with him to make McHenry County a more taxpayer-friendly place. We elected Tirio to eliminate the office of McHenry County recorder. He kept that promise, and now we can elect him as McHenry County clerk, so he can complete the consolidation of those two offices.
• U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam has represented us well and will save me $3,600 this year alone with his tax cuts, and most of you will have tax savings, as well.
• Gov. Bruce Rauner, because our state is in dire financial straits because of high taxes and union pensions. Democrats have been running our state for decades. We must stay the course with Rauner. He has fought to move us incrementally in the direction of cutting back on the tax and spending Springfield culture of taking our money to give away to others. It’s been a tough battle, but we are making progress.
Just like you, I’m trying to feed my family and not lose my house to ever-increasing taxes. If you and I don’t vote, the takers will take even more from us.
