Much-needed watchdog

To the Editor:

Let your representative know that we need Ersel Schuster as chairman of the McHenry County Board.

The new McHenry County Board will be seated on Monday. One of its first tasks at this meeting will be to elect the chairman.

Will the members wake up to the fiscal depravity our state is facing and elect Schuster for a much-needed watchdog of our tax dollars?

McHenry County residents deserve to have their paychecks treated as what they actually are, the product of our hard work and not a free supply of funds for a County Board to fritter away.

We will all be watching closely to see who is voting for their own interests and who is really concerned about the people who elected them.
