Consolidation efforts a great step forward for DuPage

Thank you, State Senator Chirs Nybo, for believing that the idea of consolidating the DuPage County Election Commission back to the county clerk’s office has merit.  With your help, others are understanding the issue and recognizing the merit as well.

From the Suburban Life editorial board

And now, state Sen. Chris Nybo, R-Elmhurst, and Democratic DuPage County Board member Liz Chaplin are teaming up to ask Sanguinetti’s task force to consider eliminating the DuPage Election Commission. In most other counties in Illinois, elections are run by the county clerk’s office. “We’ve merely asked at this point that the government task force look at that issue and determine whether there is a cost savings there that can enhance accountability and other efficiencies in terms of personnel,” Nybo said. Those are the kinds of questions we need to be asking all across the county and the state.
