McHenry County Blog doesn’t get many letters, although the email address is on the left hand side of the page.
With the election coming, I figure others might like to follow the example of Huntley School District 158 resident Fred Macciocchi Sr. and weigh in with their opinions.
Here’s his Letter to the Editor:
If we want more tax-and-spend politicians, elect Skala and Green.Having attended several Dist 158 School Board meetings while these men were board members and/or board president, many interesting events occurred. It seems their wives, as employees of Dist. 158, got nice pay raises.
At the same time, residents of the District had to live with a tax increase for the schools that ultimately cost nearly twice the amount that has been suggested. After which several million dollars were found to have been “over-looked” in the lead-up to the referendum. Of course it was too late by then.
Just before that referendum passed, a video/audio tape was sent home with Huntley High School students. The tape was a form of “electioneering.”
These reflect only a few issues surrounding these men.
Now Skala and Green want to bring their leadership and oversight skills to McHenry County. Don’t let this happen.
Fred Macciocchi Sr.
