Letters to the Editor

Haste makes waste

To the editor:

Ed Manning’s letter to the editor (6/11/20) totally misrepresented my purpose and scope of the initial formation of the Coronavirus Relief Fund Task Force.

It may be contrary to the usual progression of events for government to first study the issue, then think deliberately, before initially speaking on important subjects.

However, those were my purposes in appointing two highly-qualified Kane County financial staff members and two experienced accountants who have been elected countywide to first study and assess the U.S. Treasury’s regulations as an initial step regarding the CARES Act allocation of funds to the county.

There were no “secret” meetings and there will be an extensive process of gathering input and opinions from the widest sample of constituents – once we understand the Treasury rules. When Kane County spends taxpayer money, we “measure twice, cut once.”

Perhaps Mr. Manning is trying to give you the score of a set of doubleheader baseball games, after merely the first inning of the first game.

But that’s current politics in America, isn’t it?

Christopher J. Lauzen

Kane County Board Chairman
