Steve Leopoldo, Democratic Candidate for Township Highway Commissioner

Illinois has one of the highest property taxes in the nation and nearly 7,000 local taxing bodies.  Republicans and Democrats agree that we need to make Illinois affordable again. As Highway Commissioner, I will work to move the maintenance of the fewer than 40 miles of roads, which are overseen by the Township at a cost of over $3.2 million, to the bordering municipalities, eliminating redundancy and reducing our taxes.
