Illinois has more units of local government than
any other state in the U.S. - 6,963.
That's 5.4 units (municipal, township and county government) for every 10,000 residents. Add special districts (parks, library, mosquito abatement, etc.) and some Illinois residents have up to 16 government agencies covering the area where they live.
Candidates elected at the local government level often move up to state and federal office.
If we can build allies and stop issues affecting real estate at the LOCAL level, we are better prepared to defend our issues at the STATE and FEDERAL levels. Plus, it costs less to make a difference in a local election.
