Huntley School Principals Credit Kevin Rewerts for Heading Up 2004 Huntley School Tax Hike Referendum Committee

Yesterday, McHenry County Blog looked at Huntley School District 158 referendum leader Kevin Rewerts’ claim in a letter to the Daily Herald that he was not a leader in the 2004 effort.

To quote him directly:

” I wasn’t a leader in the educational funding referendum.”

So, some folks who save old Huntley School District newsletters sent me what is believed to be a copy of the December, 2004, edition.

Anyway, it’s before School Superintended Steve Swanson hit the bricks.

So, what does it say? (Click to enlarge.)

“The Principals also want to thank Cheryl Meyer and Suzanne and Kevin Rewerts for heading up the referendum committee. (emphasis added)

Couldn’t be much clearer than that, could it?

Me thinks Mr. Rewerts is too modest.

So, the question is, “Why?”

Got any ideas?

  1. The contact page for the B.E.S.T committee lists two people as contacts for the organization.

    The first one is Cheryl Meyer, and the other is Suzanne Rewerts.

    They said on their main page,

    Form Your Own Opinion

    Others want you to adopt their opinions. We at B.E.S.T. believe you are capable of learning the facts and deciding for yourself the truth about School District 158 and the financial difficulties it is experiencing. This web site is a source of information about many of the issues facing our schools today. The topics presented here were researched and sourced so you will know the origin of the information”

    Could it be that they are denying their involvement, because they broke the promises they made to the voters? Not only did they mislead the voters into approving an unnecessary tax increase, but their ‘totally non-profit’ organization created quite a bit of profit for some?

    They say they believe you are capable of learning the facts and deciding the truth for yourself. Where is the truth? It is not coming from them.
