Sounds hypocritical

To the Editor:

Mary Mahady, who is running for McHenry Township assessor, and her supporters claim in letters written to this newspaper that the McHenry Township election should be nonpartisan. If Mary really believes this, then why didn’t she run as an independent candidate? Instead, she chooses to run as a Democrat and to win her chosen party’s nomination in a caucus. This caucus ruled out any other choice for another Democrat to run against Mary in the primary. Yet Mary claims we should have a choice when it comes to voting for this office. Hmm, sounds hypocritical to me.

Did Mary also choose to run as a Democrat to receive support and donations from wealthy party members? I guess we will have to wait and see her campaign finance report for this answer, but I am guessing that this is the case. Mary can’t have it both ways.
