Why I’m running for clerk

To the Editor:

I am running for clerk to bring and maintain fiscal conservatism to the McHenry County Clerk’s Office.

I will control spending, reduce redundancies and streamline inefficiencies to ensure we are spending every dollar wisely. I offer solid leadership qualities that can and
will be utilized at the county clerk office. My opponent is a career politician.

My opponent wants to modernize the clerk’s office by spending tax dollars to the tune of $4 million at your cost. This would allow the election results to come in a couple of hours faster.

The problem with this idea is that it compromises the integrity that is currently in place and would allow for hackers. The only people who are willing to spend millions to reduce the safety and integrity of the voting process are politicians.

The word modernization sounds good until it costs the taxpayer more money.
