Trying to straighten my office up a little, I found this piece of literature from District 1 McHenry County Board candidate Michael Vijuk :
I see only one of four statements for which he could be held responsible should he win election this fall.
That’s his pledge to
“eliminate unnecessary costs such as health insurance coverage for board members. We spent over a hundred thousand dollars every year on this one expense.”
Let’s forget for a moment that $100,000 is less than a rounding error in McHenry County’s budget.
It could become a hot button issue, now that Chairman Jack Franks has state paid health insurance again.
Remember the headlines that Franks made criticizing part-time County Board members for being part of the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund pension program?
Anyone want to suggest he could not win a similar campaign about taking health care benefits from part-time County Board members
