Letter: You get what you pay for

Asking voters to approve any increase in funds to any community asset is a challenge, particularly in these times. However, near-term shortsightedness can result in great long-term damage that ultimately costs each taxpayer much more. The people of Sugar Grove voted to build a new library building but have consistently failed to vote the funds… Keep Reading

Letter: Judge candidate Kostelny a poor choice

Candidate for judge of the 16th Judicial Circuit, 3rd Subcircuit, Marmarie Kostelny has little to offer the taxpayers of Kane County. As an appointed associate judge, she has had simple decisions in family court appealed and reversed, costing taxpayers and wasting resources.

Letter: Supporting Wheeler for 50th State Representative

As a local businessman, I know the struggles each of us face every day.

If he were serious in that endeavor, he would have already done this, as it is the County Board who decides… Keep Reading
