Kane board's Hurlbut, McConnaughay fire back at Mitchell
Mar 14, 2012 12:01 AM - Kane County Board member Jim Mitchell on Tuesday called out Chairman Karen McConnaughay and fellow board member Cathy Hurlbut for campaign donations the pair have received from a land owner who will profit in the county's Interstate 88/Route 47 project. The board has stalled on another ethics ordinance vote before the primary election. Mitchell said he'll keep publicly citing such campaign donations until the board forces elected officials to publicly and vocally report such contributions before taking votes. It resulted in a heated exchange between Hurlbut and Mitchell.
