Having seen Scott Summers, their choice for the 708 Board replacement for the person who resigned to go to work for Pioneer Center, a 708 Board-funded agency, the Public Health & Human Services Committee will try again.

Committee Chairman Donna Kurtz has scheduled a second meeting on Tuesday, May 14, at 11:30 in the County Administration Building so the Committee can deliberate and then select another nominee for the Mental Health Board.

According to Kurtz, it “will ultimately beĀ  the Committee’s objective to select a qualified candidate who can provide the

  • financial acumen
  • judgement
  • intelligence

to represent the community in addressing the development disabilities, mental health, and substance abuse needs in McHenry County.

“In addition, the ability to be a leader in promoting and implementing transparency, community collaboration, and financial oversight is of the utmost importance.”

At the end of the unsuccessful roll call, Board Chairwoman Tina Hill announced that she would put forth a nominee herself.

The meeting Tuesday seems to be an attempt to offer a second choice to County Board members or come up with someone acceptable to Hill.

Those opposing the nomination, none of whom said anything prior to the vote, were

  • Michele Aavang
  • Yvonne Barnes
  • Sue Drafkorn
  • Joe Gottemoller
  • Jim Heisler
  • Tina Hill
  • John Jung
  • Ken Koehler
  • Bob Martens
  • Mary McCann
  • Mary McClellan
  • Anna May Miller
  • Bob Nowak
  • Nick Provenzano
  • Ersel Schuster
  • Carolyn Schofield
  • Mike Skala
  • Paula Yensen

In favor were

  • Nick Chirikos
  • Diane Evertsen
  • John Hammerand
  • Donna Kurtz
  • Sandy Salgado
  • Mike Walkup


County Public Health Committees Sets Tuesday Meeting to Recommend 708 Board Replacement — 2 Comments

  1. Ms. Hill must learn that she is just ONE of 24 members of the County

    Board and not The Dictator in charge of doing Tryon’s bidding.

    She has become an embarrassment and should resign.

  2. Now go back and check how Board members voted for Chairman.

    I wonder how many members were promised something by Hill and now regret voting for her?

    We are stuck with her until the next election in late 2014 when hopefully we have elected some better people to Board.

    At least, I hope we can get some HONEST conservatives who actually work for THE TAXPAYERS.
