'Pro-growth' candidate McNeily sees opportunities in Wheaton
Republican Robert "Bobby" McNeily is running for the Wheaton City Council on what he describes on a Facebook post as his "pro-growth" campaign.
“My pro-growth agenda is focused on freezing and lowering the property tax rates so we can bring much-needed homeowner relief,” he wrote. “I’d also like to expand our tax base … by attracting new businesses and by working with our partners, the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Wheaton Association.”
McNeily, A Glen Ellyn native and current Wheaton resident, is running from the city’s West District in the April 4 election.
“I hope everyone gets a chance to check out my first campaign video where I highlight … issues that inspired me to run for City Council,” McNeily wrote in his post. “Communication to residents is very important to me, so I hope that you will share this video so that we can deliver my message to all residents of the West District!”
A University of Illinois graduate, McNeily wrote about his reverence for Wheaton’s history, suggesting that the historic Grand Theatre be reopened to prompt economic growth. McNeily is the director of a nonprofit and also belongs to the Milton Township GOP and various civic organizations.
“I’m running for City Council because I believe that I can bring fresh ideas and solutions that work for Wheaton,” his campaign poster reads.
