Champion the Many Positives that Make Cary Such a Wonderful Place

There is so much that makes our community great. We are a compassionate, family-oriented community with a hometown feel that relates back to our roots and history. We have incredible schools, great parks, and an award-winning trail system. We are centrally located and easily accessible. We have a strong community spirit, with our residents coming together to volunteer their time and talent to provide activities for our children and families. We have a strong business core, including manufacturing and businesses both small and large. And we have the lowest crime rate in McHenry County, leading Value Penguin to name us the 5th safest mid-sized city in Illinois.


Build on Our Economic Development Successes to Reduce Property Taxes

Property taxes in Illinois are out-of-control, forcing people to uproot their families and seek greener pastures elsewhere. While the village only makes up 5% of your property tax bill, we continue to do everything we can to reduce these taxes for our over-burdened residents.


Continue to Be a Responsible Steward of Your Tax Dollars

I understand we are working with your hard-earned tax dollars and we absolutely must continue to find ways to be more efficient and cut spending.
