The first time around, one of McHenry County College’s supporters, Mary Miller, didn’t make it to the meeting.
Tie votes fail.
A special meeting was called for Wednesday night and Miller was there to provide the decisive vote.
About a year ago, according to the new Board’s minutes from April 25, 2013,
“Mr. Wilbeck stated the voters have spoken loudly and want transparency and honesty and asked whether the Board could look into rescinding the contract extension action passed tonight.
“Attorney Rogers responded to Mr. Wilbeck’s question, noting that the action was a valid act of the Board and is not something that can be rescinded at a subsequent meeting.”

My reading of Robert’s Rules of Order is that only someone who voted on the prevailing side may vote to reconsider. In the Illinois General Assembly the rules say that has to be done on the same day as the motion.
Maybe we should hold a caption contest for the photo above.
No press conference has been held since…at least none to which I have been invited.
