Happy Fourth of July!
What is going on with our Lake County Board? Have the members of the board forgotten what our country stands for? Just this past week two committees voted against empowering Lake County voters.
Let's remember the importance of democracy. Democrats and Republicans have united in Springfield in support of Lake County voters' rights to self-determination. Both houses have passed a bill that awaits the governor's signature. SB2544 proposes a question for our November ballot: Would we like to elect the county assessor? The Lake County Board holds the power to appoint the assessor as well as the power to endorse this bill. They are not using either power in the best interest of the voters.
This is wrong.
