Letter: Vote against Mega-Dump backers on County Board

To the Editor:

In addition to voting for national and statewide office Nov. 6, voters in DeKalb County will be given the opportunity to vote for individuals to represent them on the DeKalb County Board.

I would like to remind DeKalb County voters of the names of the County Board members who voted “yes” in May 2010 to allow the Mega-Dump expansion to become a reality.

Thus, for the next 100 years, DeKalb County will be a dumping ground for all of Northern Illinois. These County Board members, unfortunately, are running for re-election. The good news is that they are in contested districts where three candidates are vying for two open positions, and these representatives do not deserve your vote: District 2 – John Emerson; District 3 – Riley Oncken; District 4 – Anita Jo Turner; District 9 – Julia Fauci; District 9 – Paul Stoddard; and District 12 – Jeffery Metzger. Keep in mind these individuals sold out the citizens of DeKalb County. It should also be noted that Mega-Dump supporters (District 7 Sally DeFauw and District 6 Ruth Ann Tobias) are also running for re-election in uncontested districts.

I’m sure these board members probably hope their constituents would forget about their desire to pollute our county, but that is not the case. Let’s show them we have not forgotten how they betrayed us and sold us out. Vote Nov. 6.
