Huzzah! Dan Cronin Delivers on "Smaller Government"

This has to be music to EVERY taxpayer's ears.  Doesn't matter if you are a Republican, a Democrat, a Green or a Liberatarian.  You have to be thrilled that someone in Illinois is taking action to dismantle an unnecessary unit of government.

That someone?  Dan Cronin - the DuPage County Chairman.
Six months after being granted the power to eliminate 13 local government entities, DuPage County is working to disband one of them. 
The county board on Tuesday agreed to begin the process to dissolve the Fairview Fire Protection District, which covers an unincorporated area near Downers Grove. 
"This is a momentous occasion," county board Chairman Dan Cronin said before the vote. " 
It's the first time this new law has been used in the state of Illinois. This is the demonstration of how you go about dissolving units of local government in a responsible and thoughtful way."

Good for you, DuPage County government.   With all the news coming out of DuPage about government waste and lack of results - especially in the DuPage County Auditor's office - this is certainly great news.

Next up?  Let's get rid of Townships all across the State of Illinois.  We'll help.
