How often does a citizen chastise members of the McHenry County Board in public?
I can’t think of many.
Last night Joe Alger, one of the stalwarts of Patriots United (whose annual breakfast is Saturday morning) offered criticism for being asked if he had ethics training when he applied unsuccessfully for the County’s Ethics (sic) Commission and nepotism by elected officials.
“You don’t need that to know what’s right and wrong,” he said.
Alger has just retired. Maybe he’ll run for County Board in District 3. (His wife Mary ran two years ago.)
But as interesting was Board member Diane Evertsen’s reading of a list of what government should not do.
Andrew Gasser has posted Evertsen’s presentation here.
It is entitled, “The Ten Cannots.”
I gather that Evertsen thinks that McHenry County government is doing too many of them.
Gasser’s blog is becoming a go-to place for those who want to know what the County Board is doing…things that might not be important enough to make the Northwest Herald.
