Get ready to bend over for Bill Foster to stick it to the electorate. Anyone who re-hires a representative after he was fired in his old district two years ago needs their head examined.

Congratulations to Bill Foster. His tenure was cut short by the Tea Party takeover before he had a chance to make a name for himself. Now he has that chance. So sad about Hultgren. I tried so hard to communicate with the guy but he is so stuck in his Tea Party ways that it is impossible. Hopefully he'll lose in the mid-terms never to be seen again. If he was still in my district, I would have fought tooth and nail to get him defeated, but alas...

Interesting how little support Kendall County Chair John Purcell received.
Tim November 07, 2012 at 09:02 PM
Nothing shows how little support you are getting, than winning the election. Statements like yours are exactly why Kendall County is quickly turning into the laughing stock of Northern Illinois. As a whole, the residents voted to; NOT save money on the REC center NOT save money on their electric bill but they want to cut every levy by 20%? The amount of uninformed voters it takes to arrive at these contradictory results is nothing short of amazing. The area is in for a long, slow death spiral with this level of education showing up at the polls.

Yea ...ineffectual leadership and poor management skills have hindered John Purcell. He barely made it into the top 5 and should have been booted out earlier as his soul mate Suzane Petrella was in the Primary. Purcell should think long and hard about running for Kendall County Board Chairman again later this year. And if he does, the 9 other Board Members should not vote for him and instead vote for Judy Gilmour who garnered the most votes of any Board candidate running yesterday. Judy is a good person, an effective leader and can steer Kendall County in the right direction in the years ahead. She has to get in there and clean out the buddy like old guard of staffers including the unelected people like the County Administrator, Jeff Wilkins.
