To the Editor:
I’m a McHenry Township resident, and I am very glad that we finally will have a choice for assessor in the April 9 election.
I don’t believe this has ever been a contested race. The usual procedure has been that once someone is in, they stay until they are ready to retire. They run again, get re-elected and then retire shortly after that. The trustees appoint someone, and the voters have no say in who is in that office.
I don’t think the current assessor will finish the term if she is re-elected. I urge you to vote for Mary Mahady. She is more than qualified, highly respected and committed to serving the people of the township.
