State Representative Allen Skillicorn-elect submitted petitions calling for a referendum stating the following:
While at the McHenry Township Electoral Board hearings today, County Clerk Mary McClellan answered a question I posed to her soon after Skillicorn’s petitions were filed.
Shall each taxing body located partially or wholly within the limits of the County of McHenry be required to seek voter approval by referendum prior to increasing its annual total property tax levy?
I asked her to tell me who filed an objection.
Today she told me it was Linda Fitzgerald.
The name sounded a bit familiar, but I couldn’t remember why.
McClellan found that hard to believe and when I asked who she was, McClellan told me Fitzgerald was her Chief Deputy.
“She was acting as a citizen,” McClellan told me.
