As McHenry County continues to grow, our transportation needs also grow. As a member and leader of the County Board, I have successfully secured more than $300 million in State and Federal dollars for road improvements. Recent projects include the widening of Algonquin Road from Route 31 to Route 47 and the widening of Route 47. Upcoming transportation improvements that will help ease traffic congestion and improve safety on our roads include the construction of the Algonquin Bypass and the widening of Rakow Road. Obtaining funding for these critical projects and others is the result of a solid working relationship that exists with key decision-makers in Springfield and Washington, D.C. If re-elected, I intend to continue fostering those relationships so that McHenry County remains a priority when funding for road projects becomes available.
