Lake County has won the sunshine award for being one of the most transparent counties in the State of Illinois. I would ensure to keep transparency and continue the openness of the county with the taxpayer through existing means and to promote more town halls throughout the county to educate the taxpayers of the importance of:
- Participating in Local Government.
- Property Tax Relief and Education.
- Taxpayer Forums, Direct Q & A with Board Members.
- Education Forums to Understand How Local Governance Works.
Our communities need to be more active in Local Government and have a better understanding in how their Local Government works for them.
