Expensive campaign

To the Editor:

When you see what seems like entirely too much money being spent on an election campaign for some office, it makes you wonder why that’s happening.

The mayoral race in McHenry is a good example. We see very expensive electronic billboards, many expensive commercial fixed billboards, and hundreds upon hundreds of signs throughout the city promoting the re-election of our current mayor. It is obviously an expensive undertaking.

The mayor has written to her family, friends and supporters telling of the tragedy of her personal bankruptcy and how that should be isolated from her leadership of the city’s financial destiny. The voters will decide that.

But the question arises as to who is bankrolling her expensive campaign, since she can’t if she’s bankrupt, and why is that happening?

Possibly after the election, when the financial contributions and expenditures have to be reported, we’ll know who that is.
