The turnout was not spectacular for the McHenry County Young Republicans County Board candidates’ night Friday night.
Mainly hard core watchers of county government.
The Friday forum featured candidates for Districts 2, 3 and 4 minus County Board Chairman Ken Koehler and Lyn Orphal.
I’ll get to the contents as soon as time allows. Suffice is to say that the first question concerned the County Board’s bare majority vote to raise property taxes the maximum amount allowed by law.
One candidate, Tom Wilbeck of Lakewood, running in District 2, said that was what inspired his last minute candidacy.
I hope the sponsors ask the same tax question tomorrow.
