Bill Prim vows not to collect sheriff's office pension

WOODSTOCK – A candidate for McHenry County Sheriff says he will not draw a second pension if he's elected to the office.

Bill Prim is eligible for a pension based on his 27-year career in Des Plaines Police Department, but will not seek one from the Sheriff's Office, he says.

"I state unequivocally that on my first day in office, I will notify the pertinent pension plan administrators that I will not participate and that I voluntarily opt out of any and all pension arrangements available to County employees or elected officials,"' Prim said in a news release.

His opponent, Andy Zinke, current McHenry County Undersheriff, has spent his entire career at the Sheriff's Office, therefore is only eligible for one pension.
