SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Dan Didech, D-Buffalo Grove, plans to provide a fresh perspective on ways to enact real property tax relief, as well as increase government transparency and accountability, as a member of the House Counties and Townships Committee and State Government Administration Committee.
“When I go to door-to-door and talk to families in my community, the biggest concern I hear is skyrocketing property taxes,” Didech said. “I hope to provide my colleagues some insight about how we were able to do lower taxes at the local level as we work to address the systemic issues facing Illinois.”
Didech aims to bring his experience from his time as township supervisor to his new committee posts, offering insight on how he was able to lower property taxes through consolidation and cracking down on patronage hiring. In the coming weeks, Didech will also be introducing legislation to empower middle-class families to lower their local tax burden, as well as legislation to ensure politicians do not collect multiple public pensions and salaries.
Aside from his posts in the Counties and Townships and State Government Administration committees, Didech will also serve on the Energy & Environment and Judiciary-Civil committees.
“We must have a serious and open discussion about what can be done to ensure families are not forced out of their homes,” Didech said. “I look forward to working with all of my colleagues to find real solutions and move our state forward.”
