Ersel Schuster served on the McHenry County Board committee–Management Services–that has written the Rules that new Chairman Jack Franks wants to amend without reference to that committee.
She has looked at the proposed changes and has these comments for current Board members;
Heads up… McHenry County Board members…
You are being rushed into making decisions you will regret.
First and foremost… the County Board Rules are just that… YOUR rules.
They are not the chairman’s rules.
No matter what the rules committee does this morning, that cannot be factored into the process by which the Committee on Committees does its job.
There is a well vetted reorganizational process in place and it must be used to do the business.
Change is good.
However, change for the sake of change, or for political purposes, is dangerous.
Take the time necessary to do a serious study on any changes.
Should this selectively assembled Rules Committee go along with the chairman’s wishes… the rush to incorporated these changes will be the least of your worries.
You will rue the day you allow the backroom tactics of Mr. Franks to run your business.
Not a good beginning for our county.
