16. As always the hard truth is tough to swallow!

One political party in control equals abuse.

Like in Cook County where it is controlled by the Dems the DuPage County problems are caused by one political party in total control. The Republican control of the Forest Preserve District with the 6 weak Commissioners (really 5 since Commissioner Joe Cantore District 2 rarely attends) is a lot like the Cook County Board when Todd Stroger was in control! Sad but true.

Since the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County was separated from the DuPage County Board they have allowed these questionable practices:
$ Annual salaries of more than $53,000 with a taxpayer subsidized pension and full time benefits for a part time job.
$ Hiring of family members for well paying jobs.
$ Award of millions of our tax dollars in non-competitive contracts.
$ Accepted unlimited campaign donations from companies doing business with the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County.
For all the taxes we pay we deserve a better Forest Preserve District in DuPage County! Please tell any like minded voter you know in DuPage County about these abuses! It can change with new Commissioners elected on 11/6/12
