But, don't even think about raising the taxes in Lake County, sales tax or otherwise!

How interesting.

While the Lake County Board continues spending money on acquiring land, they have failed to live up to their
agreement to build a Golf Course at Fort Sheridan.

Had they done their job in a timely fashion, we would be golfing.

Promoting what they NEVER HAD ANY INTENTION OF DOING.......
Lies, distortions and business as usual.

I remember when the Lake County Forest Preserve Board HAD integrity which is sooo long ago.

Why I even voted for all of their concerns because I
assumed they were working to move forward.

Boy, was I wrong.

Where is Mark Kirk in all of this?
He claims it isn't his concern. This is local stuff. He can't be bothered.
When the LCFP Board fails to live up to the agreement with the government, Kirk isn't concerned?

I will bet a new Congressman would be.
Maybe Mark Kirk should finally begin acting like a Congressman for us and then he wouldn't be running scared for his re-election. Check out the DailyKos

Kudos to Splendid!

The county should be lowering taxes.

Difficult economic times call for LEADERSHIP.

Lowering taxes should be first on the agenda

AND fulfilling previous promises.

Stop spending money on NEW issues.
