Donna Kurtz has served on the McHenry County College Board and now is on the McHenry County Board.
At MCC, she and Scott Summers changed their mind on building a minor league baseball stadium on the watershed of Crystal Lake (the lake).
For that, they were censured by their fellow Board members.
On the McHenry County Board, Kurtz asks penetrating questions, as you can see from the three articles published this past weekend on the Human Resources Committee meeting about the irregular (to put it mildly) hiring of two Jack Franks’ patronage workers. (See Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.)
But, Kurtz has figured out that the real possibility for cutting taxes lies in Crystal Lake High School District 155.
She is running with three other candidates for the four seats open this year.
The back of the literature, which seems to have been mailed to at least some people in Crystal Lake, those promising tax cuts, take on the conflict of interest issue caused by those who are members of the teacher union running for the school board where relatives have jobs or teach in other schools.
The final four on the ballot are those pledging to cut District 155 taxes.
The District 155 Education Association (aka, High School Teacher Union) is holding a candidates’ night Monday night at Crystal Lake Brewing Tap Room at 150 N. Main Street at 7 on Monday night.
The candidates pledging to cut taxes have not been invited and the room is small.

If there is other campaign literature being circulated, I would be happy to publish it if someone would email it images or drop it off at my home at 275 Meridian Street (the northeast corner of Lake Avenue and Meridian Street–where the Gate 11 sign is.)
