McHenry lucky to have Schaefer as alderman

To the Editor:

I, like most people of our area, get very frustrated after national elections.

We vote for candidates who promise to represent us. After being elected, they represent the people and interests that filled their campaign coffers.

We are very lucky locally to have a number of candidates whose special interests are the people of and the city of McHenry. Jeff Schaefer, our 3rd Ward alderman has “us” as his special interest and gets my vote. He was born and raised here, loves our town, and he does his best for its citizens.

As for mayor, we are lucky again to have two great candidates. Today, I am leaning toward Sue Low, but I think that Steve Cuda did a great job when we elected him. I would not mind if he was re-elected.
