Allen Skilllicorn has deep roots in the Fox River Valley. His grandfather worked as a janitor at Crystal Lake South High School. Allen’s mother, April, was a special education teacher in School District 300 and later served pre-school children as director of the Crystal Lake Head Start program.
As a trustee for the Village of East Dundee, Allen worked to keep the property tax levy frozen since he was first elected in 2011. This work combined with local economic growth, has dramatically dropped village property taxes per home.
As a candidate for State Representative, Allen is endorsed by Tax Accountability. Tax Accountability is the Political Action arm of Taxpayers United of America.
Despite a challenging economic climate, East Dundee’s downtown has attracted $14 million in private/public investment. With Allen’s help, East Dundee has lowered taxes, increased services, and reinvested in infrastructure.
Skillicorn has also emphasized greater government accountability. He led the way in getting important records and financial information posted regularly on East Dundee’s village website.
Allen’s success in East Dundee has lead to endorsements from the Technology & Manufacturing Association and National Federation of Independent Business.
Skillicorn currently serves as Vice-Chair for the Kane County Republican Party. A former congressional candidate, Marine Colonel Larry Kaifesh, said Allen has “a unique ability to bring people together.” As a party leader, he’s helped countless republican campaigns and defeated many tax hike referendums.
