Below you will see McHenry County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill’s letter to Board members about her recommendation of Crystal Lake City Councilwoman Cathy Ferguson to the 708 Mental Health Board.
The County Board’s Public Health & Human Resources Committee, chaired by Donna Kurtz, voted to recommend Crystal Lake City Councilman Jeff Thorsen, but, immediately thereafter Hill said that she would not put Thorsen’s to a vote before the County Board.
Thorsen is a finance guy.
He is a banker who has a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.
Ferguson is a counselor who handles drug abuse, among other problems.
She talked a little about that when she voiced her opposition to decriminalizing marijuana in Crystal Lake (giving tickets where the city would get the money, rather than running criminal cases through the court system in which the city does not benefit financially.)
She said she thought the issue was important because marijuana was a gateway drug.
