Vote accordingly

To the Editor:

The McHenry County Board has decided not to increase its tax levy for the next year. So now it’s suddenly concerned about the personal finances of the citizens of the county just as an election comes up with all board members’ seats available.

I want to make sure that no one forgot what happened last year when they had the same opportunity to not increase the levy, but did so anyway despite having a very large reserve balance.  

The following people voted not to increase the levy – Draffkorn, Evertsen, Hammerand, Hill, Miller, Nowak, Provenzano, Salgado, Schuster, Wheeler, and Yensen. The following people decided it was more important for them to have your money than it is for you to have your money – Bless, Breeden, Donner, Heisler, Jung, Kurtz, McCann, Merkel, Munaretto, Schmidt and Koehler. Please take these names with and vote accordingly.
