Battle cry

To the Editor:

Vote out all incumbents is the battle cry. Some do need to go.

I regularly attend McHenry County Board and select committee meetings. I rely on what I physically see, hear and experience or read in minutes and official documents.

I live in District 6, where deliberate misinformation and debatable donations surfaced.

There are only two incumbents, Diane Evertsen and Ersel Schuster, who regularly demonstrate steady, common-sense perspectives and voting records that coincide. They don’t profess a stance and vote the opposite.

When my elderly mother, who lives in District 1, reached out to her county officials, no one provided assistance or help. She received empty talk at best.

Please check voting records, read minutes, listen to audio on the website. Consider attending meetings to personally hear the words, observe body language and expressions.

Do your current representatives serve you or themselves?
