If you think Kane County is bad…

If you think Kane County is bad…

There are 3,033 counties in this great land of ours and one of the fascinating ironies is, despite it’s vast Republican proclivities, Kendall County ranks 41st in property tax severity. That puts them in the one percent of the most heavily taxed counties in the nation!
Ya really gotta watch those tax and spend Republicans! 
Of course, part of the reason for this oppressive yoke is Coroner Ken Toftoy is putting the late Kane County Coroner Chuck West to shame. If you read this excellent Yorkville Patch piece by Todd Milliron, you’ll see that Kenny has passed out so many deputy coroner badges that half of Kendall County seems to be on his payroll.
Well…most of them aren’t actually on the payroll, but every last one of those deputy coroners gets to carry a badge and gun which, to this columnist, sounds a lot like a multi-million dollar lawsuit waiting to happen.
Considering Toftoy’s apparent and blatant flaunting of the FOIA laws, and since I know how difficult this kind of investigative reporting can be, I’ve got to give Milliron a ton of credit for his due diligence and bringing this to light.
Suddenly I don’t feel so lonely and don’t feel nearly as bad about living in Kane County. Read the column for the full details.

  1. That article by Milliron will be coming down soon. A lawsuit is being prepared as it is defamatory and includes numerous false claims. I am not going to fight the details out on a blog. But, believe me, I know what I am talking about here. You should write about the terrible candidate Milliron is backing against Toftoy http://www.nodabney.com
