  1. I know im not that smart BUT why in the hell somebody run against John Oneill for school board? all of his kids are home school. Wake up McHenry.

    Nunda Township wake up also Lori McConville the Demacrap will win something . Lori is the person that wants 20 millions dollars from your Township, so dont get all mad if your taxes goes up in Nunda, better get 2 write-ins. HELLO

  2. Thumb: Agree on McConville, disagree on O’Neill. He pays property taxes too, doesn’t he? There are times when home schooling and school districts have interests and issues, why is he excluded?
