oppose campton: And I Always Thought That Campton Hills is Screwy....Check out Grafton! - 12/14/10 03:00 PM
So, I'm checking my e-mails and I see this blast about Graton, Illinois.  I'm not dismissing Campton and all of the ridiculous issues that they deal with and create each and every day.  Nor am I dismissing the leaders (I'm not sure how they got blessed with that terminology in Campton - An Oxymoron really) that are supposed to serve and lead.  But...having said that, Grafton has it's own set of issues.
Check out the "Huntley Patch" regarding Campton's Grafton's Issues.  The judge, basically told the a person who was working in an administrative position that the position was no longer … (0 comments)

oppose campton: More Updates in Campton Hell....er Hills - 12/16/09 06:12 AM
I receive this e-mail this morning from Sue Secondi, a distinguished member of the community who needs to be supported in her bid for political office.  Sue is running for precinct committeeman.  She'll be an awesome representative who want to protect their land, and their income in troubling times.  Here's the most recent update from Sue.  By the way....write her name down.  Vote for Sue Secondi.
I wanted to let everyone know last night VCH banned video gaming within the Village.  They got this one right! 
I'm just not sure they would have voted on this last night had I not … (0 comments)

oppose campton: Watch Out For Campton Hills - 12/01/09 09:32 AM
Tonight at the Village Board meeting: 
XII. Discussion and consideration of a motion to adopt an Ordinance amending the Zoning Ordinance relative to PUDs.
This may look harmless enough, but I was told by someone who actually picked up the ordinance that one of the changes is to  exclude Horse Farms and home based businesses from being  allowed in existing PUDs,  unless your Covenants specifically allow Horse Farms and Home Based Business.
Talk about a blow to our way of life.  You must speak up about what the Village is trying to take away from you. 
PLEASE  this could be your future and … (4 comments)

oppose campton: Campton Hills - The Devil is in Their Details - 11/17/09 01:53 PM
Got this from a leader who took notes and observed more ridiculousness from "Campton" bureaucrats (My comments are in parens or italics):
If you were wondering what went on last night at the Planning Commission hearing, the Community Center was full (not standing room only, but a crowd).  After an hour of planning commission business including re-hash regarding Norton Lakes Subdivision the Public hearing was held.
Big thanks to unincorporated La Fox and Elburn residents who showed up and voiced their opposition to the annexation and zoning changes.  The planning commission heard  from 5 different people, all saying the same thing.  We don't want … (0 comments)

I'm sure VCH hopes no one notices this Public hearing set for:
 Pay Attention to the Actions of the Campton Officials (I can't use the word "leaders" becase they're anything but that)!!!!
There's a zoning change request from a current land owner regarding annexation into the village.
The property is located at 2N190 Harley Road. (what it doesn't say is that for it to be contiguous to the Village, the property must start at 38 and extend down the west side of Harley to that address and maybe even further down Harley)
The Agenda also does … (4 comments)

I wish that I could say that I have had even one thing to do with this site, but unfortunately, my contribution is just sharing this site with the world, or more importantly, the concerned citizens of what I hope will someday be "formerly called" Campton Hills.  A new site was launched and in all truth, I have no idea who did this, but to say that it tickles me would be a gross understatement.  I wish the person(s) would step forward so that I can give kudos where kudos is needed.

oppose campton: Campton Hills Referenda - Oppose Campton Hills Referenda - Vote April 7th!!! - 04/06/09 01:59 PM
OK, so we're at a new election here.  The Campton people are trying to justify the new positions by creating new ideas for Campton people.  Below are the ideas that our taxing bodies have come up with in all of the months since the last election.  This why we have elected big government.  It takes a lot of time to come up with three great questions for our village to consider utilizing it's efforts.  See the just awesome questions that we need to consider.

1)  Who really cares?  What makes it "historical" per se?  The biggest problem that I see … (1 comments)

oppose campton: More Campton Stupidity - 10/31/08 03:50 PM
Just spoke to a homeowner about 1 hour ago who spoke about the Special Service Area tax for the drainage issue that Campton wanted to bill them.  Patsy told the homeowner that they needed to have over 50% of the homeowners sign the petition.  The homeowner got 64%.  Patsy argued thereafter that she couldn't use the petition.  She instructed him to pursue other legal remedies.  When he went out to talk to the area land owners, one told him that Patsy said "if you sign it, I'll triple your assessment."  Bottom line is that Patsy doesn't have that authority.  Frankly, even … (0 comments)

Another e-mail from a concerned citizen of Campton Hills:
Under the category of, "are you kidding me?"
Last night, the Pro/No people did a ROBO call.  The name, Linda Bauman was used at the beginning of the call, on behalf of Keep Campton Hills.  Ouch, Linda needs to re-check the FACTs before making the statements she did. The basis of the call was another outright fabrication. But this is nothing new.
The FACTs are Tim Ratliff (USPS Regional spokesman) and Don Sommers (postmaster at St. Charles) have both confirmed (to dozens of residents) that the address change came from the authority of the Village, and … (0 comments)

Well it's official.  The gnats are out.  I received two phone calls from the village of campton or the big government of Campton or the Advertisers for Campton even though I'm on the do not call list.  Although the do not call list doesn't apply to political campaigns it should for oligarchies, dictatorships, and campaigns with known liars.  As a result, I get BS calls from people who want to run our lives and think that they can BETTER THAN WE CAN!
AS ALWAYS, protecting the names of the innocent, I want to share with you one of the myriad of e-mails that … (0 comments)

oppose campton: Campton's Citizens getting their wishes granted!!!!! - 10/24/08 08:05 AM
I'm so excited.  I just saw the news from today's Kane County Chronicle. It really couldn't be better news.  The courts applied the law that the parties had presented to judge.  This is huge because the disconnects can now vote.  This is awesome.  The citizens get their disconnect, but while Patsy, et al. determine whether or not they are going to appeal the disconnect rulings, they still are afforded the same rights as all of Campton's voters.  To allow otherwise, would mean that the disconnects would be preculded from voting, but the Government of Campton could file an appeal after the election … (1 comments)

I was contacted this am by a citizen of Campton of whom I never met or have communicated with in the past.  His manifesto is just one of many from concerned citizens against the ill-placed big brother government that exists in Campton.  So many people who voted for the incorporation have switched now that they understand what Campton's ruling class is up to with Campton.  I'm please to have permission to republish this.  Here it is as given to me:

Being a lawyer I can appreciate a good lawyer joke.  Here's one...."What's the difference between a lawyer and a vulture?"  A vulture eventually let's go.  While funny as a joke and a good dig on attorneys, it sure seems to be the M.O. for Patsy Smith....Let go already!!!!  People want out!!!!  The law is on our side!!!!People are winning.  Courts are ruling against her....but she doesn't seem to be able to let go....but then again it's not her money that she's spending.   
In my opinion, she spends money indiscriminately in order to:
1)  Keep the village from dissolving even though A … (2 comments)

Went out of town for the week and I missed a lot of turmoil it seems.  I received a myriad of e-mails asking me to tell others to vote Campton out of existence this forthcoming election.  I had so many e-mails at work that this has really dropped in precedence for a bit.  Too bad.  But, I must say that in my absence a lot of things have happened positively in this past week. 
Let me tell you a few of them;

Driving around Campton Hills, formerly known as the great area of unincorporated Saint Charles and Wasco and saw a couple of vote no for the dissolution signs in their democratic, big government blue.  I decided to give an snyopsis of my take on the importance of this issue.  Additionally, below I have attached the flyer that's being passed around by the citizens opposing the new, bigger government of Campton Hills. My synopsis mirrors a lot of what these people are promulgating.

oppose campton: Reasons to Vote For the Campton Dissolution as Given by Campton The Promise!!! - 10/06/08 01:54 AM
Reasons for Dissolution
•·        It is unrealistic and ultimately impossible to effectively manage a municipality with "No New Taxes." Shared revenue from the State is never paid out at 100 %.
•·        The Special Service Area (SSA) established because of flooding in the Evening Prairie subdivision is essentially a tax, but residents have been told it is a benefit.
•·        Relying solely on sales tax revenue to support a village requires a thriving retail and commercial area.  Currently this does not exist in the Village of Campton Hills to the extent necessary to support the added layer of government. … (0 comments)

Just signed on today and got an broadcast e-mail showing the new site for the opposition against Campton Hills.  I've cut and pasted, but you can get the information yourself from the site.  The site is www.camptonthepromise.com.  Do your own research and make your own decisions on what you want to do, but this looks like a very well thought out site.  All of the citizens in Campton are concerned with the future of the area out here.  It's taken over 2000 signatures to get on the ballot to dissolve Campton where it only took a few signatures to create this … (0 comments)

oppose campton: Vote Yes....for the Campton Hllls Dissolution - 09/23/08 05:23 AM
Time is always of the essence.  It's time that the Citizens of Campton Hills band together to let their voices be heard.  It's on the ballot and there's a lot of information for and against keeping this entity together.  We already know that a special service tax has been created for a drainage district despite the claims of no new taxes.  The villagers are free to vote any way they want, but the time to act is now.  Check out the site www.stopcamptonhillspac.com.  Although, I'm not involved with any organization, I have strong feelings towards this dissolution.
