Programs in jeopardy

To the Editor:

As a taxpaying member of McHenry County, I really would be interested to know and understand what the Mental Health Board is doing with the funding it receives. It is important that we provide our youth with an opportunity to be successful and have the correct resources available to them along the way.

Programs such as TAG are in jeopardy of losing funding (that should be allocated by the Mental Health Board), and our community will be at a great loss if we as McHenry County citizens allow this to happen.

What is more important, putting money in the hands of those who don’t have our community’s best interest at heart or ensuring that nonprofit agencies such as TAG continue to have the resources needed to help our children?
