In the boxes of McHenry County Board members before last night’s meeting was a letter from County Auditor Pam Palmer announcing her retirement.
You can read it below:
She has selected January 5th to leave office.
My understanding of the law is that McHenry County Chairman Jack Franks will name her replacement with two qualifications;
- The replacement must be a Republican.
- The replacement must be approved by the County Board.
Had Palmer resigned earlier, her replacement could have been selected by the voters.
