People should be aware that the state keeps a larger percentage of the revenue from recreational marijuana while Will County receives less than $120,000. Those funds should go toward drug addiction/opioid addiction programs and the sheriff's department so taw enforcement can get what it needs to keep our residents safe. Some have suggested reparations but I am opposed to those funds connected to drugs and alcohol which in my opinion is part of what is decimating the Black community.
Currently, we are in the midst of a pandemic and everything has changed. Projected revenue from sales tax and gasoline are two areas that have been affected. Potentially, we could explore increasing the budget of law enforcement and health services. Hopefully, that could be done without raising taxes. These are two departments which have been deeply affected this year and may have a lasting impact. The county should stay lean and efficient spending wisely. We have no clear end to the shut downs nor do we know the total economic devastation to local businesses and residents.
I am the only candidate who has voted to give the tax payers back their money. As a Township Trustee I am already serving my community. The County board is another way I can continue to protect the pockets of the taxpayers.
