Reject McHenry County Government Change

In 2012, McHenry County voters overwhelmingly rejected a ballot proposal that would have changed the county’s government structure to a County Executive form of government. Despite 2:1 rejection of the referendum (64% NO, 36% YES), Springfield politicians have filed legislation to sidestep the residents’ wishes, and make those changes anyway.

HB 3317 would completely reorganize McHenry County’s current government structure, and give the County Board Chair broad, expansive powers, including sole veto power over county board decisions, a separate budget for his/her staff and resources, the authority to set the county budget, and authority to spend money without full board approval.

Tell Springfield they can’t change our government without our consent.
