The millionaire tax is the political version of two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. As 100% of the people if 2% ought to pay more and a good majority of the self-centered 98% will vote "heck yeah...it doesn't affect me". A good example of why we have representative government and not a true democracy.

Mabey the "on time in jeopardy" is a little alarmist this early. However the longer they hold off the harder "on budget" becomes if you plan on keeping the original target date. although I don't think its uncommon for deadlines to get pushed back a time or two on a project this size. Knowing the schedule they are under there is probably a reason overtime and double time contingencies were put…

Randy Frese has been chosen as the Republican nominee for the 94th Illinois State Representative.

 Frese took 70% of the vote against Marshall Schrader of Monmouth. 

Frese says he is humbled by all of those who helped in the campaign. 

“Thank you to those who came to the fundraisers, who wrote checks, who allowed us to put signs in their yards, who walked and knocked on doors with us,” said Frese. “When it comes down to a night when you can celebrate a victory, it makes it all worthwhile.” 

Currently, there is no Democrat on the general election ballot. 

However, Frese says he will count on the fact that the Democrats will appoint someone to run. 

“We will continue on strongly with the campaign,” said Frese. We will generate some enthusiasm about getting some good conservative ideas and some common sense to Springfield.” 

The Representative seat was left vacant by Rep. Jil Tracy. Tracy ran alongside Kirk Dillard as Illinois Lt. Governor hopeful.

In the three way race for Adams County Clerk, Chuck Venvertloh won over County Board member Becky Weed and Quincy School Board member Scott Stone. 

Venvertloh won by 328 votes over Weed. 

 

Venvertloth took 41% of the vote, beating Becky Weed by 320 votes. Scott Stone took 22% of the vote.

 

Venvertloth said he will use his win's momentum moving forward. 

 

“We’ve got another one coming up here. Becky Weed and Scott Stone both ran a really hard race,” said Venvertloth. “I’m looking forward to them joining the team and making a really cohesive unit and looking ahead to a victory for the Republicans in the fall.” 

 

Venvertloth will go up against Democrat Jonathan Shoenakase on the November ballot.
