College Administrators Don’t Get Vote for a 2.75% Raise

For the second month in a row, the McHenry County College Board failed to muster a majority vote to raise the salaries of college administrators.

Last month, there was a 3-3 tie on a motion to raise salaries 2.82%.

Ties fail.

MCC Trustees Tom Wilbeck, Cynthia Kisser and Molly Walsh.

Thursday night, a motion was made to increase salaries across the board by 2.75%.

After a discussion of how a merit pay plan might work, a motion was made to give an equal raises to all administrators  with President Vicky Smith promising to work on a merit pay system this fall.

That motion garnered three votes:  Cynthia Kisser, Mary Miller and Molly Walsh.

Voting against the motion were Chris Jenner, Linda Liddell, Ron Parrish and Tom Wilbeck.

Another attempt will be made with a different proposal next month.

  1. During the last campaign statements were made that Molly Walsh would work for employee raises and higher taxes and not for value received by the tax payer.

    Keep this in mind during the next election. T

    hose of you who voted for Walsh may want to contact her and tell her to start to work for the taxpayer.

  2. By most reasonable standards employees, including instructors and professors, are over-paid at MCC, which is a two-year JUNIOR college.

    You don’t need a Ph.D. teaching there.

    You don’t need a Ph.D. teaching remedial math and reading (which should have been adequately taught in high school, so that remedial courses wouldn’t even be needed).
