This full-page ad appears opposite the editorial page in Wednesday’s Northwest Herald. “I am just like you,” MCC President Vicky Smith is quoted saying.
One has to hand it to McHenry County College.
Vicky Smith begins her open letter telling how she has been MCC President for three years. She says she has a responsibility “to see our community continue to thrive.”
The Board is sparing no expense to provide “cover” for the extension of MCC President Vicky Smith’s contract by the old Board members on Thursday night at 6:30.
MCC President Vicky Smith talks about her passion about the college.
And cover those Board members need because three of them won’t be on the Board about ten minutes after they vote to hike her salary through June 30, 2015.
Vicky Smith talks about the need for “trust,” which requires input from the public. After she gets her raise she will meet monthly at “a community forum,” where questions can be asked. At Board meetings many questions are asked; virtually none are answered.
That’s seven months after the next gubernatorial election.
This is the bottom of the Vicky Smith self-promotion ad.
It’s over two months after two of the remaining Board members will have been up for re-election. They are Board President Mary Miller and Ron Parrish.
Miller is for the contract extension by the old Board; Parrish is not.
