The Daily Herald has endorsed former Republican McHenry County Board member Craig Wilcox, recently appointed to replace Pam Althoff in the State Senate, over Democratic Party McHenry Township Assessor Mary Malady.
Mahady would like to see the property tax system revamped to make it fair for everyone.
Wilcox, who previously served on the McHenry County Board, wants a hard property tax cap of 1 percent of home value.
Both candidates support term limits for legislative leaders.
Residents of the district will be well-served by either candidate.
We endorse Wilcox.
