Consequences Having Mayors In Dual Roles

Word on the street is that Senator Don Harmon's (D-39th, Oak Park) legislation that would make it lawful to hold the office of county board member simultaneously with an elected office of another unit of local government will breeze through the General Assembly.

The county board districts are not divided by municipality.  They are divided among many different communities.  How will the Mayor of Elmhurst or Burr Ridge be subjective in the serving of the district as a whole?  What if two of the communities in the district are competing for funding?

I think it is most admirable when Republicans and Democrats work together for the betterment of the people.  From what I see this only benefits two people the two Republican Mayors running for DuPage County Board.  Thanks to their good friend Don Harmon and the General Assembly they just might succeed.
