  1. The whole vacancy was handled poorly and without transparency.

    As for the requirement that the potential vacancy be filled by an individual “Must be a person of integrity and capacity” , can’t wait to see who the Dems attempt appoint… WILL be challenged publicly on those criteria ^-^


  2. The BEC needs to be eliminated!! The BEC is a one-off and ineffective duplicate of services offered through the McLean County elections office.

    The last time “eliminating the BEC” appeared on the ballot – the question was worded as a double negative and voters could not easily determine if yes meant yes or no.
