Lee Newcom - News - Weber faces critic in race 03/07/04 [cached]
"Her (Ruth Weber's) management of the office is in my opinion almost incompetent," said challenger Lee Newcom.
Weber, president of the Illinois Association of County Clerks and Recorders, disagreed with that assessment but declined to expand on Newcom's comment.She is seeking another term because "I like the job and would like to continue," she said.
Newcom, former president of the United Republican Fund, said Weber's accounting procedures have been inadequate and put public money at risk.
He said he'd seek help from the county auditor and treasurer on how to make the recorder's office more efficient.
But Newcom's own bookkeeping practices have been called into question, too.
The Pantagraph reported last week the United Republican Fund that Newcom headed for four years is operating in a deficit and shows discrepancies in the amounts of money on hand, according State Board of Elections records.
Last week, Newcom acknowledged the problems, saying he was embarrassed by the situation and had taken steps to remedy the disparities.
The fund raises money that is distributed to GOP candidates in Illinois.
Newcom and Weber also differ on whether the office should be an appointive, rather than elective, post.
"I think it should remain elective because we report to the taxpayers," Weber said.
Newcom sees the duties of the office, which pays about $62,000 a year, as largely administrative and a good fit for appointment.

Another Huckabee delegate is Lee Newcom.
Newcom of Normal was the executive director of the Illinois Christian Coalition when it first opened a chapter in the Land of Lincoln in the early 1990s.For a time, he also served as executive director of the United Republican Fund, which supports conservative Republican candidates.
Newcom now serves as recorder for McLean County.
Newcom said it would be wrong to infer that Huckabee is appealing only to social conservatives.
"I think that characterization would not be accurate," Newcom said.
Rather, Newcom said that except for Giuliani, the entire GOP presidential field is largely filled with candidates who fit a conservative mold.
In some instances, it could be argued that Huckabee is less conservative than some of his opponents, Newcom said. - News - Newcom wants to focus on customer service 10/31/04 [cached]
> BLOOMINGTON -- Lee Newcom thinks customer service is the key to business success.
"Excellent customer service is not an option," he said.
And, if elected McLean County recorder, Newcom would have an open-door policy, including to military veterans who want a certified copy of their discharge papers, one of the many documents the office records.
Right now, Newcom said the office doesn't make that a high priority and, as a result, veterans have to go to another county's recorder's office to get the needed papers.
"The veterans issue is very important to me," said Newcom, a Republican who defeated Recorder Ruth Weber in the March primary.But it is only one of the things he would change.
"The recorder's office is going through technology changes," he said."There is a lot of new technology (the office) is on the edge of adopting.It's gradually becoming less manual."
Newcom said his background is "perfectly suited to evaluate, judge and implement new software for the office."
He is a public relations consultant and former president of the United Republican Fund of Illinois and owner of Route 66 Xpress Lube in Bloomington.Irregularities were found in the United Republican Fund while he was president, which Newcom blamed on a bookkeeper, whom he fired.
Another change he would consider is reinstating credit for frequent customers and increasing interaction with other county departments, including administration, treasurer, auditors and also the county board's finance committee.
