mike is the right choice to be your County board chairman.

It's simple really.


Mike Buehler is a successful  business owner who can no longer afford NOT to get involved in local government. 

Mike has been appalled by the corruption, cronyism, and the dysfunctional Democracy  that is the State of Illinois.  And now our current Chairman may be bringing the same back with him to McHenry County. Should we stand idly by and allow this to happen, we will experience the same monumental failures as Chicago, Cook County, and Springfield. Enough is enough!

Quite frankly, our Democratic Chairman  has been embroiled in controversy and scandalous allegations that have become an embarrassment to McHenry County. It's time to restore honesty and integrity to the Chairman's office.

Mikes plan is to restore respectful, open dialog between board members, administrators, and citizens so that we can find the best solutions that meet the needs of McHenry County.

Mike Buehler will provide an atmosphere where every Board member, administrator, and citizen are shown the respect of the Chairman. Board members will be encouraged to speak up for their constituents and for the concerns that each of their districts face. All of this without the fear retaliation, intimidation, or threats that they may feel today. Chicago style politics as our current Chairman practices have no place in McHenry County.

Together, we will reject the politics of division as is so often practiced in this corrupt state in which anyone who disagrees is bullied with lies and misrepresentations through thousands of robocalls, dishonest literature, and other means.

Mike Buehler will eliminate the patronage jobs and sweetheart lobbyist deals (that were created by our current Democratic Chairman) which will have cost our taxpayers over $1,000,000 over his four year term.

Mike will work with our board to create the kind of business environment where businesses want to come to McHenry County instead of fleeing our State due to the corruption, chaos, and inevitable bankruptcy that our State Legislature has created.

We will practice fiscal restraint and identify areas of waste and excess in order to lower the counties portion of the tax burden. We will do this as a TEAM effort and not for self-serving political gain at the expense of seniors, veterans, the disabled, or mentally ill.

At the same time, we will continue to support the very fabric of goodness that McHenry County has always represented.

Mike Buehler is not a career politician

Mike is, however, a small business owner of over 25 years primarily in the construction and infrastructure industries providing industrial weighing equipment tailored to specific applications.   It's a unique advantage in that he understands the incredible challenges business owners as well as  workers and their families face. Taxes and stifling regulations are hurting the McHenry County economy  and driving  jobs to neighboring states.  Attracting new jobs, lowering taxes, and reducing regulations are what's needed to  retain and create jobs in our amazing community!
