Letter: More peace, less pettiness

To the Editor:

What is going on in McHenry County? Threats, vandalism and ludicrous allegories to demean or create fear among those with differing points of view or party affiliations. How will our children benefit from all of the immature actions of McHenry County adults in government? What are they to learn from the stand-offs and pettiness? There is enough discord in the world at large. It’s time for McHenry County government to ensure peace and progress in our corner of the world. It was truly heartening to see so many McHenry County citizens run for local school boards. Let’s all encourage these board members to work for the best of the children and taxpayers through civilized debate and compromise.
