Spray for mosquitoes

I would like to know why I am paying taxes for mosquito abatement. I live in Lemont, and we have not had spraying once this year, and we are getting eaten alive over in the Hirsekorn Ridge subdivision. I have called twice already, and I feel like we're being ignored. Why are you taking money on my taxes if you're not going to spray?

Questioning ad claims

Since I believe in term limits I have a difficult choice this year. For a while I thought [6th Congressional District candidate] Sean Casten might be a good choice; however, his TV commercials don't make a very compelling case. Furthermore, some of his statement[s] such as comparing [President Donald] Trump to Osama Bin Ladin, claiming that there are Nazis in the White House, and accusing [Zina] Bash of making a white supremacist sign during the Judge [Brett] Kavanaugh hearings makes one question his judgement. Therefore, I would urge voters to think twice before voting for Sean Casten.
