All-around candidate

To the Editor:

For the first time in a while, there is a contested race for the McHenry Township assessor. Current assessor Carol Perschke has been there since 1995. She was appointed to that job, having prior corporation experience in finance and customer service. When she was appointed, she was on the township board of trustees. The trustee spot only broadened her skill level because of working with taxpayer dollars on a balanced budget.

Her opponent claims the public hasn’t had a choice in these years, but they did. Any time, someone could have come forward with their qualifications and challenged her, but they didn’t because of the fair job that was already being done. Because there’s an opponent, is she automatically the better choice?

My vote goes to the best all-around candidate, Carol Perschke.
