Last week the Daily Herald issued its endorsements for the McHenry County Board.
For the four-year term, Woodstock’s Karen Tirio was endorsed. Tirio owns Monarch Senior Services with her husband. The firm provides non-medical assistance to folks who need it.
Tirio is running against Prairie Ridge High School teacher Matt Hardt.
For the two six-year terms, the two incumbents were endorsed:
- Ron Parrish, elected six years ago and currently Board President. He is the outgoing Village President in Bull Valley.
- Mike Smith, appointed to fill the slot vacated by Tom Willbeck when he moved slightly outside of the college district’s boundaries. Smith is in the financial services business and has been active in the college’s foundation.
Also running for the six-year term is Scott Summers, a former member and President of the
Board, plus newcomer Jeffrey Hill, who has worked for Westwood College.
Tirio, Parrish and Smith are running on a slate.
