Same names for openings

To the Editor:

The stories on the Mental Health Board candidates and the actions of County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill in selecting a candidate of her choice are troubling and abusive to the voters of McHenry County.

Troubling in the sense that of the thousands of citizens in McHenry County, doesn’t it seem strange that the same restricted list of names is put forward for appointment to board positions over and over again? Gainfully employed “candidates” looking to hold multiple seats on boards are showing just how little time must be required to handle the duties of the seat they wish to fill.

Volunteerism is great but carries responsibility to be effective. I believe no one should be appointed to more than one position at a time.
