“Martin McLaughlin, the village president of Barrington Hills since 2013, is an advocate for reducing spending and cutting taxes.” “McLaughlin ran for state office before… in 2016.  The Northwest Herald endorsed him then.

“McLaughlin, who opposes Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s graduated tax plan, said state officials have a history of promising that some new tax — the lottery, video gambling — will solve all of the state’s problems. ‘I’m still waiting for the one tax — I’ll call it the nirvana omnibus tax– that’s going to solve all of our spending problems in Illinois,” he said.
