Bait and switch referendum
To the Editor:
The referendum concerning the structure of county government is a classic bait and switch and should be rejected.
When petitions to place the referendum on the ballot were circulated, many signers were told that this referendum would allow the popular election of the McHenry County Board chairman. What was not disclosed was that, if passed, the referendum would gut the structure of county government and concentrate gubernatorial-like powers in one person.
