Don't trust 'insider'

To the Editor:

Mike Smith, who rarely mentions anymore that he is president of the foundation associated with McHenry County College, now wants to be a trustee on the MCC board.

His wife, Lakewood Village President Erin Smith, was quoted in the Northwest Herald as "insisting" that it was not a mistake for Lakewood to sell alternate revenue bonds – without a referendum – to buy the money-losing RedTail golf course. These are the same kind of bonds MCC wants to use to build a $42 million health club and classroom building.

When Mike Smith publicly repudiates his wife's comments in this newspaper, I will vote for him. Until then, I will not trust an insider.
