To the Editor:

The Alliance for Land, Agriculture and Water (ALAW) endorses seven candidates for McHenry County Board:

District 1: Andrew Gasser; District 2: Donna Kurtz; District 3: Nancy Gonsiorek; District 4: John Hammerand; District 5: John Jung Jr. and Zane Seipler; and District 6: Ersel Schuster.

Our endorsed candidates have shown an understanding of the complex relationship of land use to the preservation of open space, agriculture and water resources. All support efficiency in county operations. Together they display a wide and diverse range of skills, a blend of incumbents with a track record of asking common sense questions, and newcomers who will bring a fresh perspective to the board.

The primary is March 18. We urge voters to learn more about all the candidates. Voters can view all candidate surveys and Statements of Economic Interest submitted by candidates for County Board and other county offices at: https://sites.google.com/site/landagricultureandwater.
