Benefit from Thorsen

To the Editor:

If you elect Jeff Thorsen to be your treasurer of our county, you will benefit by his training, wisdom and 30-year experience in banking.

His responsibility as treasurer is to protect your tax money and conservatively invest the reserves. As the chief financial officer, he must caution the 24 County Board members on the consequences of certain expenditures and expansion.

Thorsen already has saved every taxpayer from long-term debt in the McHenry County College District. In 2007-2008, the Crystal Lake City Council had the final vote to decide whether MCC could build a stadium (to pay for other construction), with projection of a $40 million public debt. Jeff had the gumption and foresight to lead the opposition to this unrealistic plan in January 2008. (Remember the economy collapsed in September 2008.)

Because of Jeff’s logic and vision, we all escaped an additional tax liability. Vote Thorsen.
