Letter: Consolidate mandated township functions

To the Editor:

As voters and taxpayers in Illinois, we have got to stop whining about our outrageous  taxes and vote to consolidate and reshape our government when given the opportunity to do so.

Township government has three mandated functions that can easily be consolidated to the county level because the county has those same functions.

You are guaranteed a minimum 10 percent tax reduction by state law for consolidating. Township consolidation has bipartisan support in Springfield starting with Governor JB Pritzker.

Vote yes to consolidate McHenry Township.
