    Gene… I think we can both agree, while the County says 14.9% turnout in Lake County, in the western part of the county, Round Lakes and Grayslake, we had a hard time making it to 10%…and that is utterly ridiculous!

    LC ~ People in the world are fighting and dying just to have the freedom to elect their governments. Yet, in areas such as Round Lake Heights which had a population of 2,773 back in 2006, only 8.5% felt it was important enough to go out and vote. That per cent might even be less based on the 2010 census which I didn’t have the figures for. Anyone looking at my voting cards signatures would see that I never missed one single primary or general election since I was first able to vote back in 1961. All I can say is SHAME on those who left it to others to decide who represents them and now they can keep their mouths shut if they don’t agree with how their villages are being run.

    PS: Did you read in today’s paper that Bean says she is not planning on running in the 8th District in two years? She must like her new job.

    Gene…I knew about Bean several weeks ago. I have never been a fan of those who were defeated trying to make a come back. If Bond happens to come across this, that means you too!
    Did you see the OPED from your township’s Supervisor last week. That was spot on!

    Yes LC, I saw Sam Yingling’s “Letter to the Editor”. He is one elected official who is trying to save the taxpayers money with cost-cutting ideas including staying true to his slates promise to refund their pay raises back to the taxpayers (although Avon Township Assessor Bryce Carus reneged on his portion).

    Sam reminds me a bit of Joe Walsh in that he is not in it for winning popularity amongst his fellow Township Supervisors, but instead has no problem eliminating his very own job if it means saving taxpayers dollars. I’m sure that his OPED rattled a lot of other Supervisors.
