The question not being asked is who does Ozinga think should control an airport in Will County? Elk Grove Village and Governor Rod Blagojevich or Will County elected officials? Does Ozinga think the Weller bill that required federal procurement rules and Will County control was a bad idea? Or does he think that Elk Grove Village should control the relationship with the private companies developing an airport in Will County?
If he doesn’t like the Will County plan, does Ozinga want to defer to ALNAC?
Independent Fighter Debbie Halvorson Puts Local Interests Before Chicago Style Politics
Joliet, IL â€“On Wednesday, Congressional Candidate and State Senator Debbie Halvorson issued the following statement:
“I am an independent fighter for the people I represent and I won’t let Chicago politicians tell us what to do in the 11th Congressional District.
“I sponsored the Will County Airport Authority bill on behalf of Will County Labor, Business and Government. This bill has bipartisan support from the legislators in Will County because this third airport bill is about local control and not handing over an airport in Will County over to bigwigs from Chicago. Our plan gives one appointment to the Governor, and ALNAC’s plan ultimately gives five.
“This issue is too important for petty politics, and shame on anyone for suggesting ties to convicted felon Rezko–someone whom I have never even met.”
