The Daily Heraldhas a fascinating quote from District 3 McHenry County Board member Kathy Bergan Schmidt:
“No other county other than Will County has hopped on this bandwagon.
“Isn’t that curious?
“We need to say that (county) executive is not equal to (county board) chair, and we need to keep saying it and saying it and saying it.
“It is equal to czar.”
The McHenry County Democratic Party’s highest elected official is Marengo’s State Rep. Jack Franks.
Schmidt was talking about the petition for County Executive he passed, of course.

Franks seems to be the person to whom Schmidt is referring to as the prospective “czar.”
It is interesting that another District 3 candidate, Mike Walkup is also taking on Franks’ power grab.
