The Northwest Herald rolled out endorsements for two McHenry County Board districts this morning.
In District 1, challengers Andrew Gasser and David Stieper were selected over incumbent Robert Nowak.
Time will tell if their promise not to take health insurance and pension fringe benefits will find favor with the public. It is predictable that their stands will not be appreciated by incumbents, some of whom get as much or more compensation from those fringe benefits than from their $21,000 salaries.
District 3’s choices were incumbent Joe Gottemoller and Nancy Gonsiorek.
Both have elected service, but so does former Nunda Township Road Commissioner Don Kopsel. The fourth candidate is former Assistant State’s Attorney Sarah Jansen.
