Vote Yes....for the Campton Hllls Dissolution

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.

Judge Colwell wrote in his legal decision the following:

"The court is not persuaded that it may simply disregard such alternate sources of funding simply because the village has not yet attempted to utilize those sources (or, more accurately, because its elected officials fear it may be politically inexpedient to do so),"

Further he wrote:  "(T)he village's position is self-serving. ... The village is opposed to the disconnection because it does not want to raise taxes," Colwell wrote in another. "If the citizens of Campton Hills refuse to pass a referendum to impose a property tax in order to have municipal services provided to them, then they will have to either live with fewer municipal services or dissolve the municipality."

I'm sure that the pro-village people think that more government is the greatest thing since sliced bread.  I don't agree.  I have received a number of calls from people who have read my posts on this stuff and want to know how they can get involved.  I've pointed them to the group in charge of the Stop Campton PAC.  I don't have the time, but I sure have a sincere heartfelt interest as I've lived in this area since 1972.   

I have a lot of information on the amount of people who are upset at the new assessments in Campton, but I'll share that at a later date.  Just take a look at your assessment.  You only have a short time to contest it.  But beware...what you don't know can hurt you.  Just be informed.

All the best!

Youre so misinformed. Since you have upset more than you think, maybe the citizens of campton hills should vote you out of the village. When you get a chance, delete my post here just like you did the other one.

I was hoping you'd stop by.

Mr Anonymous....vote me out.  Thank you...please!!!!!!! That's exactly what we want.  Vote us all out!  Thank you ahead of time.    Thanks for the support.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

I'm making people mad?  Are you kidding me?  Other than informing, I'm just promulgating information.  Both sides have sincere beliefs.  Your side does as well.  It's just that VERY many of us disagree with the arguments being set forth.

As far as misinformed, I'm just repeating what Judge Colwell said.  Nothing else.   Maybe you're suggesting that the Judge is misinformed. 

VCH@kcdee.org.... does this sound like a familiar anonymous e-mail address?  Thanks for stopping by.  And please....please, please, vote me, vote the majority of us all out.

All banter aside, didn't most people move to a township to not be consumed by another government entity with all of its rules and regs?  Isn't that the beauty of being in an unincorporated area?  I think most of the residents think so. 

We'll see....if you guys win, you win.  Such is life.  But it's my hope and prayers that we'll get back to some sort of normal life and Campton Hills will just be a part of the History of Kane County.  Best of luck to both sides.

Keep praying and maybe that will clear things up for you. It's unfortunate that you already think that the place we live, Campton Hills, is not part of Kane County history. Are you losing your mind?
Most people move to a township because they love the beauty of nature and the peace and quiet. I dont remember ever thinking, hmmm let me buy here because the dont have any rules and regs. I think its time people like you start owning up to the fact that you need to follow the rules with the rest of the county and pay your fair share. Of course, if you dont like the end result, you can move to a new unincorporated area and get your "normal" life back.

Campton is a place in Kane County history.  I just want it to be a "past" part of the history.  I'm sure that you could understand my writing, but maybe not.

I do pay my fair share.  Trust me, I do.  Everyone who lives here pays their fair share.  Tell me who doesn't.  I'm talking about MORE rules and regs that supercede the County's rules.  Most agree with you that the reason to move to a township is for the beauty and nature.  But let's face is the more that we get involved with local governments the more rules and regulations that are put on people, the less it's liked.  Let's face it rules and regs are created for people that don't play fair...they don't play fairly, therefore rules are created.  The second reason is people who are hungry for power and want to lord it over others.  I don't think that the citizens of "Campton" fail to play by those rules. 

Mr. Happy...I don't have a problem with you or your beliefs. That's OK...Thanks for commenting.  The results will be what they are.  I hope and pray that we win.  But whatever it is it is.

Just before I left for work this morning, and after watching the debates last night, I was thinking about you. So I decided last night that you will see me posting signs to vote for the township. See you around. For our sake, we hope you get your act together, and you will find out that you have been wasting too much of your time on this topic.
