Great steward

To the Editor:

Mike Smith is among the most qualified candidates for McHenry County College trustee.

The MCC board and McHenry County taxpayers will benefit from Mike’s financial expertise, leadership and true concern for people.

As to his expertise, Mike holds an MBA with concentrations in finance and marketing from DePaul University and certifications as an accredited investment fiduciary and analyst.

Regarding leadership, Mike, as president of his own company, led it to becoming one of the first investment advisory firms to achieve the Centre for Fiduciary Excellence’s coveted ISO certification.

Finally, Mike’s a number-cruncher with a heart. He invests his valuable time in the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s First Offender Program, which gives deserving, first-time, nonviolent felony offenders a second chance for a clean record.

Mike will be a great steward of MCC. I’m voting for Mike Smith as MCC trustee on April 9, and hope you will, too.
