Bob McQuillan Honored As A Liberty Leader By The Illinois Policy Institute
Spring 2012 – Bob McQuillan became a Liberty Leader in 2011 and is profiled in the Spring 2012 Compass Publication (see link below). He is one of the many great Illinoisans who are forwarding liberty in a state that many have written off as hopeless. Like many people around Illinois, McQuillan was concerned about sky-rocketing property taxes, so in August 2008 he founded GenevaTaxFACTS. The group is dedicated to keeping an eye on property taxes, promoting government accountability and encouraging community involvement. The group’s website, www.genevataxfacts.org, provides access to a wide array of government and public documents.
He and his citizen activism group successfully persuaded the Geneva Community Unit School District 304 to post a check register online and broadcast its board meetings.
The group’s success recently drew the attention of the Kane County Chronicle’s editorial board which stated: "Getting involved and voicing your opinion about local, state and federal government is something we strongly believe in. That is why we applaud the GenevaTaxFACTS — For Accountable Controlled Tax Spending — organization for taking community activism a step further."
The Liberty Leader program is a great way for McQuillan to network with peers statewide. McQuillan, and Liberty leaders such as him, come together to compare and contrast individual efforts in order to support one another’s efforts.
