Chuck Wheeler really cares
To the Editor:
Who in government takes the time to ensure the safety and well-being of animals in McHenry County?
Chuck Wheeler, chairman of [the McHenry County Board’s] Public Health and Human Services [Committee], does.
As a member of the Board of Health, I felt compelled to share my impressions of Chuck. I admired Chuck’s commitment to the welfare of pet populations in McHenry County who are subjected to harsh winter conditions.
His insights into better communication between the sheriff’s department and the animal control department were intelligent observations of the policy.
Wheeler took time in our meeting to fight for the voiceless creatures of the county.
As a result, there was clarification to our current policy to protect our pets.
Wheeler is an example of compassionate and insightful leadership not just for pets but for District 4 primary voters, as well.
Please make Chuck Wheeler your primary choice in the upcoming election for County Board. He cares!
