I'm writing today in response to the recent allegations by Chris Lauzen against Kevin Burns in the race for Kane County Board Chairman. I ask Sen. Lauzen what he has brought back to his district in the form of revenue for jobs? What has he lobbied for in Springfield? Has he brought back hard dollars for construction jobs?
It's easy to throw jabs but people should look at his record on his accomplishments for all the time he has been in Springfield. While you are at it look hard at all these politicians running for office and ask yourself what have they done for the area and what plans they have laid out for the future.
The one thing still free in this country is your right to vote. I hope all will exercise this right and cast your vote for the politician who's rolled up his or her sleeves and are prepared to straighten out the mess in this state before it's to late.
