Quite simply, county board job is simple
Does it matter who is the messenger? In 1787 our Founding Fathers wrote our Constitution and they gave us a republic. In a republic we elect people to represent our views on issues in a Congress.
Our representatives are merely messengers whose job is to vote on issues according to how the majority of the people he represents want him to vote. This is how, in reality a republic works.
Richard Franckel ("Proof voters do not know candidates") was concerned about Lauren Nowak being elected to the DuPage County Board; he should not be, she will be as good a messenger as Kevin Wiley. Why not? The job is simple.
