1 o’clock is the time to be at the McHenry County Administrative Building if you want to hear the candidates to replace Board member Ken Koehler interviewed by County Board members.
Chairman Joe Gottemoller will head the interview.
He appointed Koelher to the Metra Board with the County Board’s approval.
He can recommend anyone he wishes, although the local Republican Party said its choice was long-time Crystal Lake City Councilman Jeff Thorsen.
Besides the Board Chairman, Gottemoller has selected District 2 member Jim Heisler, District 6 member Michele Aavang and Mike Skala, a close Gottemoller ally.
It would be interesting to compare the questions asked by the Republican interview committee members with those asked by the County Board members.
