Lake County has the highest property taxes and a culture of corruption that's making national headlines. Instead of safekeeping our tax dollars, under Treasurer Stolman’s watch, your tax dollars were used for lavish personal expenses and funded over 18 million dollars in no-bid contracts to the spouse of a county employee. And while Stolman was writing checks to his cronies, they returned the favor by giving him a pay raise.
I'm Holly Kim. I'm running for Lake County Treasurer because it's time for fiscal responsibility that puts taxpayers first.
MUNDELEIN, Ill.- Lake County Republicans are marred in scandal, from Nick Sauer’s disgusting sexual acts to Aaron Lawlor’s misuse of county funds. The Holly Kim campaign for Treasurer is shining the light on Lake County Treasurer David Stolman’s involvement in it.
Stolman, who manages the taxpayer dollars for Lake County, is supposed to be on top of county finances, but he has been unable to locate misused funds by County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor. According to the Daily Herald, he could only account for 1 of 3 checks sent in by Lawlor, and didn’t even know if they were cashed. In fact, instead of taking the time to get to the bottom of Lawlor’s misuse Stolman was busy taking money from a business with county interests by accepting a large donation from a bank holding nearly $20 million in county funds.
“This is a breach of trust and a clear conflict of interest on the part of David Stolman,” said Holly Kim. “Government officials must be a fiscal watchdog over taxpayer dollars. By accepting this donation, Stolman is giving an enthusiastic nod to corruption and conflicts of interest in the Treasurer's office.”
