Please support House Bill 3593

House Bill 3593, sponsored by Representative Sam Yingling in the 101st General Assembly concerns the ability to remove a County Board Chairman with or without cause by a 4/5ths vote of the County Board body.
I ask that you support this bill, as it is good policy, and allows for the removal of a Chair if the body feels that the Chair is not working in the best interest and for the benefit of the Taxpayers.

Here is the language of the amendment of (55 ILCS 5/2-1003) (from Ch. 34, par. 2-1003).

A chairman who is chosen by the county board may be
removed, with or without cause, upon a motion adopted by an
affirmative vote of four-fifths of the county board. Upon
adoption of a motion to remove the chairman: (i) the chairman
position becomes vacant and the former chairman’s compensation
shall be prorated to the date the motion was approved; (ii) the
vice-chairman immediately assumes the duties of chairman
without chairman compensation; and (iii) a new chairman shall
be elected at the next regularly scheduled county board
meeting. A chairman removed under this Section maintains his or
her status as a member of the county board.

Here is the link to the General Assembly Website for the bill.
