To the Editor:
I do not just reside in McHenry, I am an active participant in our community.
In addition to serving as your mayor, I am a Rotarian, I serve on the Character Counts coalition, I represent the city on the McHenry Area Youth Commission, and I am a proud member of the Warriors Watch Riders.
I am a strong and visible leader who is devoted to McHenry.
Every town in our country is struggling with the economic climate. I believe that the biggest challenge is keeping our community vital and engaged so that the residents feel like stakeholders in our future.
When you look around McHenry, if all that you see is an empty Walmart; then you don’t see what I see.
I see community pride. I see a community that supports each other. I hope you will give me the opportunity to continue to serve as your mayor. I love McHenry.
