The terms of three members who didn’t think that Undersheriff Andy Zinke’s use of his office in the courthouse for a campaign TV interview was unethical have terms that are expiring.
Perhaps more ethical people will apply for the three new appointments by a new McHenry County Board.
The McHenry County Board is accepting applications from persons interested in appointment to the McHenry County Ethics Commission. Three (3) positions are available for terms ending February 1, 2017.
Application forms are available at the County Board Office, Room 209, McHenry County Government Center, 667 Ware Road, Woodstock, IL 60098 (815-334-4221) or at the County’s website at http://www.co.mchenry.il.us/home/showdocument?id=12290.
Applications should be returned to the County Board office no later than 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 23, 2014. If mailing your application, certified or registered mail is recommended. Mailed applications should be sent to the following address: McHenry County Board, 2200 North Seminary Avenue, Woodstock, IL 60098.
The following terms are expiring February 1, 2015:
- John White
- Cherie Rickert
- Thomas Spencer
These three were so naive that they didn’t think Zinke’s use of the office county’s email system to advance a political candidacy was improper. See stories and links to stories about the July, 2103, hearing here.
