To the Editor:

I attended the McHenry County College candidates forum, which makes my decision for trustee easy.

I will vote for Tom Wilbeck, Chris Jenner and Molly Walsh. Wilbeck and Jenner were well-spoken with factual information to support their points. They oppose the feasibility study for a $42 million MCC health facility (which includes a 30,000-square-foot fitness center).

They cited a decrease in the county school district enrollments, a county abundance of existing fitness centers, and a previous tuition hike for students. They gave positive ideas for improvements at MCC in the best interest of the students and our community.

They advocated for balanced budgets, reducing spending wastes, and not using bonds without a public referendum.

Walsh also appears to be unafraid to speak out for the taxpayers. You can have this voice on how your tax dollars are spent for the next six years.
