The people seeking to put township consolidation on the ballot are making robocalls to encourage people to call wavering County Board members to vote, “Yes.”
While I imagine they are making the calls in each McHenry County Board district where members are not committed to vote in favor of the proposals next Tuesday at the 9 AM meeting, what I have is the script for District 3. It stretches from Crystal Lake to McHenry.
McHenry County Board Chairman Joe Gottemoller and member Nick Provenzano are targeted.
Both are vulnerable if opponents use the two poll results showing about 80% of voters want the issue on the ballot.
This Tuesday, October 2nd, the County Board will decide whether to put township consolidation on the ballot.
This will reduce the number of townships from 17 to 8.
As a result, tax savings will occur by eliminating 72 elected positions, reducing overhead, equipment and supply needs.
