2017 Winter Survey Results

I want to thank everyone who participated in my recent legislative survey, which was mailed to District 63 residents in February. The survey was also available on my web site. In all, I collected about 500 responses. For the most part, the survey results were not surprising; the citizens of the 63rd District feel overtaxed and want Illinois to control spending and pass a budget. I consider all three of these issues to be top priorities.

In addition to the 11 primary questions, the survey also offered participants an opportunity to provide additional input and suggestions. I am reading every individual comment and the input will be valuable as I continue to serve as the legislative voice for northern McHenry County.

The results are as follows:

*Top “other” answers: High taxes, the need for term limits
*Top “other” answers: Cut waste, reduce the size of government,
don’t raise taxes, oust Speaker Madigan
*Top “other” answers: Cut spending, reduce taxes, enact pension reform, oust Speaker Madigan
