Before the end of my first term, I will pursue consolidating the functions of the County Clerk and Recorder's offices.
Abolish My Office
In our county as elsewhere, government roles are frequently occupied not by the most qualified, but rather with the better connected, better funded, more successful campaigner. It's no wonder that our county/state/country is in the mess it is in.
If you feel as I do that our county is in need of something other than more politicians, I encourage you to vote for Joe Tirio for Recorder on March 15th
LEARN MORE ABOUT ME
Learn more about me, where I've lived, worked and why I think I will be the best (and last) Recorder for McHenry County.
Illinois should be the envy of all other states.
Our rich, tillable land, water access to the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico, the largest fresh water reservoir in the only U.S.-controlled Great Lake and our central location which makes us a natural hub for telecommunications air, land, and rail transportation are advantages any state would wish it had.
Given all these natural gifts, the only rational explanation I can muster for this State's situation is either negligent or criminal leadership.
Help me, and others like me, return this state to the people.
Cook County's finance board will meet today to discuss whether the people of that county will have an option on the November ballot to merge the Recorder and Clerk's office. While they have some stronger language to describe their Recorder's office, the core sentiment is the same, we must seize any opportunity to reduce government size and cost. Read >
Monday, I joined many fellow McHenry County citizens in a protest about our taxes. A friend, Dan Aylward paid his entirely in dollar bills. I am proud to be among such great people that they would take their time to come out and show that they are not afraid to get involved.
I am saddened that we needed to.
