To the Editor:

It is a privilege to support individuals for elected office who I have known and admired for many years.

As Crystal Lake city councilmen, Jeff Thorsen and Ralph Dawson set a standard of excellence by seeking out and representing the best interests of the community. Over the years, each consistently has demonstrated a unique combination of common-sense leadership and informed decision making that has contributed mightily to good, honest government in Crystal Lake.

For the three McHenry County College trustee positions, Mike Smith, Molly Walsh and Tom Willbeck recognize the ongoing needs and sentiments of the community and will stand up for these concerns.

In addition, Smith’s adept leadership abilities will help move MCC in the right direction, and Walsh’s constructive and collaborative manner will bring diverse opinions and groups together.

Please make your voices heard April 9 by voting, and please consider casting your vote for these excellent candidates.
