The only two women running for McHenry County College Board
- Linda Liddell
- Diane Evertsen
swamped their three male opponents.
Liddell was running for re-election.
Evertsen, who self-term limited herself to two terms on the McHenry County Board, ran first.
Losing were Thomas Allen (who I thought has some really good ideas for training young people for union trades), Ph.D. economist David Schenk and former MCC Board President and McHenry County Board member George Lowe.
The coalition who support Evertsen and Schenk now have elected five of the seven MCC Board members.
Others elected by the coalition include Chris Jenner, Ron Parrish, Karen Tirio and Mike Smith.
Smith betrayed the coalition the night he was sworn in by turning on Ron Parrish, who had served as Chairman of the MCC Board and desired one more term. When Smith saw he could garner the votes to become Board Chairman in his first term, he did so.
With the coalition now having four of the seven members of the new Board, one can assume that Smith will not be elected Chairman.
