The McHenry County Board’s Public Health and Human Services Committee interviewed applicants for the Mental Health Board Thursday.
There were four applicants, including former Democratic Party District 5 member Paula Yensen.
Yensen was nominated by District 3 member Don Kopsell, but no one seconded his nomination.
The committee recommended reappointment of Crystal Lake City Council member Cathy Ferguson, a counselor who argued against cutting penalties for marijuana use in that Home Rule city.
Bruce Treadway, owner of Caring Transitions, was recommended to fill one of the two other vacancies.
There was no recommendation for the third opening.
New applicants will be sought.
Members of the committee are
- Mary McCann, Chairman
- Anna May Miller, Vice-Chairman
- Donna Kurtz
- Donald Kopsell
- Chuck Wheeler
- Member Michael Rein
- Member Larry Smith
Donna Kurtz was not at the meeting. A commenter says that Anna May Miller was not either.
