Putting My Experience to Work
I see the Democratic Party in America changing. They are being influenced by the "Democratic Socialists of America." I know that socialism in any form is not constitutional. I see the democrats calling themselves "progressive" which is code for socialism. I see this new democratic party trying to "fundamentally change" our country and take away our constitutional rights. This attempted change is happening at the federal level from the top down. I am running to preserve our Constitution from the bottom up at the Grass Roots Level.
Will County has the 34th highest median property taxes paid in the country. The average homeowner pays $4,921 per household. There are 3,143 counties in the country. This put Will County in the top 2% of property taxes paid. These numbers are located on Tax-Rates.org. Taxpayers have been taxed enough in Will County. I will NOT support any new taxes proposed by County Government.
I will, within the first year of my term, commission an independent audit of all County Departments to eliminate duplicate functions, streamline services and eliminate the practice of giving stipends to department heads.
Will County has lost its economic manufacturing base. I will encourage controlled economic growth with available incentives and require associated infrastructure improvements to recession-proof our County well into the future.
There’s a huge epidemic that costs Will County taxpayers millions every year, and that is the opioid and drug epidemic. It reaches into all our pockets and takes funds away from other worthy projects and priorities. And more importantly, it destroys families and communities. I’ve had great success battling this problem over my entire career. As your next Will County Executive, I will work tirelessly to provide leadership and resources to turn this epidemic around.
Like many of us, I have a deep respect for our veterans and military families. There is no greater service than to put one’s life on the line for God and Country. As County Executive, I will work to provide needed resources to those brave veterans and their families.
