Tonight I answered a four-question survey about McHenry County College’s proposal to build a health club.
It was from an organization I have never heard of and I doubt exists.
I heard “McHenry County Better Government Organization.” Maybe I didn’t write it down accurately.
Regardless, if it exists as anything but a front group, I’d be surprised.
The questions were roughly the following:
- McHenry County College is proposing a multi-[?} expansion. If you are in favor, press one button, if not, another.
- McHenry County College is at 50% capacity. Should it be expanded? If you are in favor, press one button, if not, another.
- McHenry County is planning to build a health club. If you are in favor, press one button, if not, another.
- McHenry County College plans to pay for the health club by increasing tuition. If you favor having tuition increase, press one button, if no, another.
In one or more of the questions there was an “undecided” option.
The question in my mind is who would want to know that information.
There are lots of candidates running for the McHenry County College Board.
Some are vehemently opposed to building a health club (think Chris Jenner, Tom Wilbeck, Erik Sivertsen).
If they had this information, they could target those who answered the questions in the negative.
