Thank you!

Last night was great.  I am overwhelmed by the support that I have received from so many.  I can’t thank you enough.   I have to send a special thank you to my husband and kids.  They really made this easy for me when I know things were, at times, hard for them.

I am excited to get to work on you behalf on the DuPage County Board.

VOTE ONE AND DONE!


Tomorrow is the big day.  I am going to need your help to get elected.  The ballot will read Vote for 3. I am asking friends and supporters to vote for me.  Vote one and done.    


I worked to bring a safe water supply to my neighborhood at an affordable price and with no annexation.  Some said that would never happen.  It took two and a half years, but it happened.


While serving on the DuPage Water Commission I earned of reputation for scrutinizing the financial statements  and for questioning its reliance on the countywide sales tax, which will be phased out and end in 2016.  A forensic audit praised me for my efforts for alerting the commission of the financial problems only to be rebuked by staff or fellow commissioners. 


This past year I worked with my neighbors to stop a commercial intrusion in our neighborhood.  It took seven months but after we made the case that this was not an appropriate location for a Walgreens, the petitioners withdrew their plans. 


When I am elected to the DuPage County Board I will work to reduce the tax payer funded bloated salaries and benefits for our part time elected officials.


I will work to eliminate waste and misuse and insist that our tax dollars are being used to benefit the people of DuPage County.


I will work to eliminate no bid contracts and introduce a Responsible Bidder Program.


I will work  to provide compassionate social service to our children, elderly, disabled, poor and our veterans.


I will work for the establishment and maintenance of sound environmental services andpromote economic development serving the best interest of all citizens.


Remember please vote Elizabeth (Liz) Chaplin. I am first on the ballot.  Vote one and done!



Please Vote November 6th

With election day right around the corner I would like to say how much I have enjoyed meeting the people in District 2.  I am very excited about the opportunity to serve to the people of District 2 on the DuPage County Board.  In order for that to happen I am going to need your vote on November 6th.

I believe that most of you know what I stand for and know that I will work hard on your behalf when elected.

If you have any questions before election day please look back through my blog, there is a lot of information.   You can also contact me at 630-518-6740  or send an email to lizchaplin1@gmail.com.

Naperville Sun Candidate Questionnaire

Do you believe the salary, benefits and pension plan provided for County Board members are appropriate for the part-time position? Why or why not?
Simply put this is a part time job, an elected position and public service. There is no justification for the $50,079 salary. I will fight to cut in half the salaries paid to all County Board members and I will either decline or donate to charity fifty percent of my after-tax salary for serving on the County Board.
Last December the board had the opportunity to eliminate their pensions but they opted to keep the taxpayer funded perk for themselves while in the same time frame they voted to reduce benefits for the full time county employees. A leader leads by example. As your DuPage County Board member I will not accept the taxpayer-funded health or pension benefits for my service and I will seek to abolish such benefits for members of the County Board.
