From retired McHenry County Board member Ersel Schuster\:
While reviewing the 12/20/16 McHenry County Board Agenda… I could not help but notice the first 3 (of 48) items under “new and unfinished business:”
“13. NEW AND UNFINISHED BUSINESS
- Resolution Adopting Revised McHenry County Board Rules
- Resolution Amending Resolution R-201611- 12-309 Setting the 2017 Meeting Dates for the McHenry County Board
- Resolution Recommending Appointments to the Standing Committees”
County Board Rules clearly outline the process for making well thought out, substantial changes.
These rules are apparently being ignored and manipulated.
If you have not already determined we have a completely out of control county board chairman; you are sleeping, just do not care, or you must be dead.
From all appearances, this chairman is a classic example of someone who believes laws and rules are for anyone except him.
This is one person, shoving a personal agenda down the throats of 24 members… or enough members who are willing to go along with him for their person gain (look at the committee asignments).
A legitimate question is obvious… exactly why do we have a county board?
I implore the 24 county board members to take the reins and make this process work for the public they were elected to represent.
Do not allow a chairman, driven by an out of control ego, to rule.
