To the Editor:
I am writing to support the election of Mary Mahady to the position of McHenry Township assessor.
Mary is an extremely dedicated professional who will bring to the assessor’s office a fairness and appropriate treatment of all properties within the office’s jurisdiction.
We have been subject to 17 years of back-door assessment practices, and it is time the public be educated about the process and receive the type of service from our assessor that we deserve. I can speak from experience of having successfully appealed my property assessment twice that the assessor’s office has not been fairly operated for many years. As the taxpayers, we deserve better services.
I truly believe Mary Mahady will be the correct answer to a long-standing problem.
