Two Letters to the Editor in the Northwest Herald praised the recent work of State Representative McSweeney:
"... I’m happy that my colleague, state Rep. David McSweeney, filed House Bill 4253 in an effort to halt legislative salaries. I am a chief co-sponsor. This bill would apply the pressure needed to get the bipartisan budget passed the state desires."
- State Representative Mark Batnick
"Our sincere thanks go to state Rep. David McSweeney and State Sen. Pamela Althoff for shepherding this important legislation through a challenging process.
Thank you both for your efforts on behalf of Algonquin Township, McHenry Township and Nunda Township residents. We appreciate your hard work, lobbying and leadership. We are indeed fortunate to have such an effective representative team working for McHenry County in Springfield."
- Robert J. Miller, Algonquin Township Highway Commssioner
