    The litmus test in this coming election for McHenry County Board is simple.

    Any incumbant Board Member who approved either a budget or positive tax levy for Valley Hi between 2002 and 2014 without objecting to the many Millions of Dollars in liquidity it had and continues to have on hand is either incompetent or worse.

    These Board Members should be flatly rejected by McHenry County voters irrespective of the political team he or she hails from.

    The degree of mismanagement at Valley Hi over these many years is unconscionable and all those Board Members who were charged with financial oversight of Valley Hi at any time during this 11 year period should be relieved of his or her political office come election day.

    This is only because he or she does not have the decency to resign first.

    For those on this blog who complain about out of control taxation in County government to speak or vote otherwise is hypocritical.

    Incompetence has no political boundary whether the incumbant/candidate be a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, RINO, Tea Party member or part of a local political team.

    It is interesting to this day, the McHenry County taxpayer has not received an apology or acceptance of responsibility by any Board Member concerning the negligent confiscation of taxpayer wealth at Valley Hi.

    The focus on this election should be a candidate’s resume and degree of competence to do the job for the residents of McHenry County otherwise we end up with what we have . . .

    Remember, #29 in the U.S. was not achieved by chance but voted in at election time.

  2. Will someone want to follow up on who exactly gave the order to keep $40 million on hand in a checking account for rapid access?

    With amounts of overage at risk without FDIC insurance?

    Earning almost no interest, witht the amount growing for 8 years?

    Did the bank at which these funds were deposited (receiving the benefit of the float) give any loans to any County Board Member during the past 8 years?

  3. Why is Wimmer running as a democrat?

    I should think the Socialist Workers Party would be more his cup o’ tea!
