From John Nelson's County Board Chairman campaign website:
"I have serious concerns about certain Winnebago County vendors and their relationship with Winnebago County officials. We were all shocked to learn that vendors doing business with the county were complicit with the Winnebago County Purchasing Director, who was sentenced to two years in prison for theft of taxpayer money.
Last week I proposed a three point plan that will: 1) Regulate vendor campaign contributions to candidates or elected Winnebago County officials; 2) Require disclosure of any campaign contributions to any candidates or elected Winnebago County officials on bid applications; and 3) Push for term limits on elected Winnebago County officials. These three measures will help ensure the bid process and vendors do not obtain any unfair advantage due to a cozy relationship with Winnebago County officials."
