Sound fiscal management

To the Editor:

As an employee of two small businesses in McHenry County, I am very aware of the effect the economy has had on our small businesses. I also am aware of how important it is to have good leaders in place who know how to encourage responsible economic development during these difficult times.

I recently read an article about a report by the Department of Employment Security that showed McHenry County leading Illinois in job growth and reduction of unemployment this summer.

I see letters from people who wish to point a negative finger at our County Board chairman, but Ken Koehler’s results for McHenry County speak for themselves. He, along with his colleagues, have worked hard with agencies to help create and retain jobs.

As a taxpayer, I appreciate the Aaa bond rating that has resulted from sound fiscal management and practices This is why our county is the best in Illinois, and I am proud to have raised four kids in Crystal Lake.
