Avon Township Slate files to run

Well election season is in full stride it seems, with announcements flying fast and furious. This party seems quite well organized, it remains to be seen how successful they will be because the incumbents are well entrenched and very old school, and if I am not mistaken very republican. They even had the guts to vote themselves pay raises recently. This race ought to be close.
FROM The WAUKEGAN NEWS SUN-- A full slate of candidates has been announced for the April 7 Avon Township election.

Sam Yingling, candidate for Avon Township supervisor, will lead the Avon Forward Party.

"I am excited to be working with a group that has such diversity in its professional background," Yingling said. "Our candidates are committed to restoring fiscal accountability to the taxpayers, reversing the pay raises for elected officials that the current administration approved, reigning in the out-of-control township spending, as well as making the property tax assessment process 100 percent transparent."

Yingling's running mates are Lisa Rusch, township clerk; Bryce Carus, assessor; Tom Brust, highway commissioner; and Sherry Ridge, Chris Ditton, Marc Feldstein and Randy Evangelides, trustee candidates.

It's nice to have some new blood in Avon Township. The same people have been there for decades and have nothing to show for it. Township government is nearly irrelevant. Townships exist primarily to pay bloated salaries to elected officials at the expense of the taxpayers.

This slate is well aware of the waste and drain that the current structure of Avon Township government promotes and has many innovating ideas for streamlining operations, redirecting services in more useful ways, and cutting waste and fluff.

I don't understand what Yingling means about diversity- I do not see any black faces or hispanic last names in his team. For your info the hispanic population numbers in RLB alone is + than 40 %. Yingling is a Realtor. Doesnt america realize that they are the ones to put us in this nationwide financial mess. As to the experience of his team- i certainly doubt it. Wakw up people, to change a corrupt governtment doesnt always mean that we have to go with corrupt option number two.
