MCC Board Bows to Illinois Supreme Court Decision, Approves Release of Walt Packard Contract

It was political pressure that led to the release of baseball promoter buddy Mark Houser’s feasibility report after months and months of secrecy…at the meeting where the board majority censured then-Board President Scott Summers and Donna Kurtz, no less.

It was a combination of political pressure from the Northwest Herald and an almost on point May 21st Illinois Supreme Court decision ordering the release of the Wheaton Warrenville Unit School District Superintendent’s contract that led to the McHenry County Board’s back flip.

Tomorrow morning, bright and early, I’ll be at President Brian Sager’s office looking for the copy of ex-MCC President Walt Packard’s $200,000 a year golden parachute contract that I requested under the Freedom of Information Act.

I wonder if there will be any justification for giving him and his wife health benefits through August 21, 2012.
