Letter: Some McHenry Township trustees not on right track

To the Editor:

In response to Mr. William Cunningham’s recent letter to the editor regarding McHenry Township, I would offer the following clarification of his misleading comments.

Nobody objects to allowing the voters to decide if the road district should be eliminated.

The objection is to politicians like you making claims of tax saving that never come to fruition. Voters want real information on the benefits and pitfalls of the actions you propose.

Do your homework, get the facts, present them to the voters and let them make the decision based on solid information and not your half-concocted mythical promises.

You claim that you and Mr. Anderson got the most votes when elected. True, but you left out the fact that you stole the Republican name with your back-room deals by your cronies stealing the voter’s voice by holding a weighted vote caucus.

That is the real reason you won, not because of any qualifications you had.

Every other candidate was more qualified than you.

As pretend Republicans, your antics were so egregious that Sen. Althoff submitted a bill, which was approved, so this trickery can never happen again.

You claim the road district needs more oversight.

I remind you of your duties as a trustee. To audit and approve every bill paid for on behalf of the road district, approve the annual levy and approve the annual budget.

I would suggest, if you fulfilled your responsibilities, there is plenty of oversight.
