To the Editor:
I was surprised to read state Sen. Pam Althoff’s comments in Saturday’s newspaper (Feb. 16) that claimed Walmart’s recent move to Johnsburg was the result of a border agreement I negotiated with Johnsburg in 1999. The senator is wrong.
The new Walmart is located on land that was annexed to Johnsburg long before McHenry entered into the agreement she referenced in her letter. Sen. Althoff certainly should know this since she also signed that agreement on behalf of the city of McHenry.
The citizens of McHenry can be assured that all statements I will make during the upcoming mayoral campaign will be based on facts and will not be an attempt to smear my opponent.
