Every year Heather and I looked forward to judging the D300 Science Fair. It’s always a treat to meet the best and brightest of the next generation!

East Dundee, IL – President Obama campaigned on themes of hope and change.
Seven years later Illinois looks very much like it did when Obama first made these promises.
Our state has the highest unemployment rate in the Midwest, the lowest credit rating in the nation, and has the 2nd highest property taxes in the nation.
A lot of talk, but little change, Illinois under Mike Madigan and the Chicago Democrats in charge looks remarkably similar, even worse, than it did seven years ago.
East Dundee, IL –Frank Mautino was appointed to be the Illinois State Auditor General in October.
Records Mautino provided to the State Board of Elections regarding his expenses reveal that Mautino spent $213,338.31 on fuel and repairs for his campaign vehicle between March of 2005 and December 2015.
His campaign itemized expenditure reporting indicates $20,914.20 was used specifically for gas purchases during that same time frame, all at the same gas station, Happy’s Super Service Station. Additional instances of questionable spending continue to come to light.
“How does someone spend $21,000 at the same exact gas station?” Skillicorn continued, “I challenge members of the House Republican Caucus and my three Republican opponents Paul Serwatka, Dan Wilbrandt, and Carolyn Schofield to call for an independent investigation and for Frank Mautino to resign or be removed from office if allegations of improper spending are found to have merit.”
Yesterday the McHenry County League of Women Voters hosted the first public forum for the 66th State House District. In case you missed it, a video of the event is below thanks to the Northwest Herald.
