Paper almost got it right

To the Editor:

I have to take exception with the Northwest Herald’s endorsement of Mike Smith, president of Friends of the MCC Foundation, for the McHenry County College Board of Trustees.

Smith is the spouse of Lakewood President Erin Smith – the same Erin Smith that was quoted as saying alternative bonds to pay for the RedTail golf course purchase wasn’t a mistake. Ask the Lakewood residents about that. For 11 of the 18 years of the bonds, they paid for it and did not get free golf.

I hope that this absurd thinking has not rubbed off on Mike Smith.

Tom Wilbeck and Chris Jenner are two candidates who believe in asking taxpayers what they want rather than telling them what they want. If you want a say in your future tax bills, vote for these two candidates.
