To the Editor:
I am writing to support and endorse Paula Yensen and Michael Skala for McHenry County Board from District 5. I have worked with them on various commissions and issues and appreciate their dedication, style and professionalism.
In today’s politically charged environment, some wonder why I would endorse candidates of different political parties. I believe elected officials work for people, not parties, and I want to support those best suited for the job; even more, those who understand people come first, not politics.
Paula Yensen is an individual of integrity and compassion with a desire to serve not issues and institutions, but residents. She works intensely to promote consensus and resolution to the benefit of all.
Michael Skala is a thoughtful, common-sense leader with a commitment to fiscal responsibility and practical solutions. His calm, thorough approach supports sound, unbiased decision-making.
I encourage voters to support them on Nov. 8.
