The McHenry County Board’s Management Services Committee is on deck today to follow in the footsteps of Human Resources Committee.
On June 2nd, all Human Resources Committee members voted in favor of abolishing pensions for County Board members.
Now it is the Management Services’ turn.
Naive folks might think that will end the attack on McHenry County Board members.
After all, the County Board lowered its tax take this year and is in the process of getting rid of pensions for its part-time and full-time members (the Chairman).
What more could one ask?
At the June 2nd meeting of Human Resources, Wonder Lake Republican Precinct Committeeman put it quite succinctly:
McHenry County Board members are eligible for health insurance benefits paid for by taxpayers.
Elected officials should not receive health benefits for part-time positions.
Please look into this issue and see what could be done to remove health insurance benefits from board members.
You can bet that Jack Franks will pound on this issue during his campaign against Mike Walkup for the County Board Chairmanship.
