McHenry needs leadership

To the Editor:

Hats off to Sue Low.

How you won the race for McHenry mayor is a testament to how many friends and family you have in town. You now have the opportunity to reverse all of the damage you have caused over the past 10 years.

Your job is not a social function, but to govern. Start to govern. Be a leader. Fill all of the vacant space on Route t120 and Route 31. Bring back the city to what it was before you took office.

Where were you on election night? In a local bar. What kind of example is that?

We don't need dog parks and more dollar stores. We need real leadership. Take a stand and stay out of the social limelight and fix what needs fixing. Do your job and govern.

Do that, and you might be re-elected again. If not, McHenry will be worse off four years from now.
