Do the right thing

To the Editor:

As former senior counselor in one of the most respected agencies in the state that provides substance abuse treatment for adolescents and young adults in McHenry County, I know the importance of insuring the issues of the Mental Health Board are addressed.

I can tell you first hand that if the problems are not corrected, many families and, ultimately, the community will be devastated. I have seen the great choices the Public
Health and Human Services Committee have made in the past several months and greatly respect their integrity and full dedication to the citizens of McHenry County.

I have many family members and friends who live in the county, and we all sincerely hope that the County Board members withdraw from allowing Chairwoman Tina Hill to propose her own candidate and dismantle the excellent work of the committee.

I hope and pray County Board members do the right thing.
