Mahady has nonpartisan approach to assessor job

To the Editor:

It is unfortunate that Carol Perschke is attempting to make the McHenry Township assessor election a partisan issue.

The real issue is who is best qualified for the position and who will treat the taxpayers respectfully and honestly. That person is Mary Mahady. Unlike nonpartisan city elections, a party affiliation is necessary for township elections. The office of assessor should be nonpartisan, exactly how Mary Mahady perceives it.

Carol is correct that Mary is proud of and emphasizes her service on the Board of Review, which has given her a wealth of experience and insight. In her capacity as a hearing officer, she judged the work of the assessors. For 13 years, Mary Mahady corrected Carol’s mistakes and made sure taxpayers were treated fairly and equitably.

Mary will bring that judicious attitude of fairness to the assessor’s office where it is currently lacking. Vote for Mary on April 9.
