Engaged professional

To the Editor:

McHenry County Coroner Anne Majewski is an amazing public servant, and while the concern for public information is legitimate, your calling her out from the editorial page is ridiculous. She is transitioning herself into public office while trying to change the culture of an entrenched bureaucracy. We are fortunate to have her in the coroner’s office, and I couldn’t be more comforted to extend her the public trust.

Calm yourselves down and address your concerns directly with her, not aired out in a grandstanding fashion. You will find an engaged, caring professional. These are areas I am afraid the editors of the Northwest Herald revealed themselves lacking in.
