Via Illinois Review, Illinois Review: Interview with Kane Co Board Chairman Karen McConnaughay - Part 1
IR interviews Kane County Board Chair Karen McConnaughay.
When you consider Kane rode the housing bubble, I'd say the county under McConnaughay has done a pretty good job not getting sucked down the drain as the bubble burst and real estate (and transfer tax revenues) tanked.
The consultant thing's bothered me, but a rank-and-filer GOPer told me the consultants may be the only unbiased voice McConnaughay hears.
Kudos to IR for landing the interview from a Pol who hasn't said wonderful things about bloggers in the past.
