Elected to the McHenry County College Board three years ago, Tom Wilbeck, now running for the McHenry County Board in District 1, offers the following commentary on the Vicky Smith administration’s trying to convince four Board members to vote to levy the maximum amount of tax possible after two years of holding taxes constant:
The past 2 years MCC has had a flat levy and the college has performed quite well actually.No problems arose.
NO to a levy increase.
Come on trustees!
Enrollment is down, population projections are down AND the taxpayers are way down!
Expansion is no way warranted.
Cuts though, are warranted throughout.
Look closely again at my classroom utilization study.
It’s on record.
Things have not changed.
There are many internal – easy answers.
Come on trustees it is common sense to just say NO.
Look who you represent and do what the people expect.
