McHenry Township Assessor Mary Mahady Announces Run for State Senate — 13 Comments

  1. None of these candidates talk about the elephant in the room and that is the bankrupt Illinois pension system.

    No mention of a plan to move pensions from a defined plan to individually managed 401(k) system.

    Focusing on anything else under the guise of providing property tax relief is simply picking lint out of your naval.

    Unless I hear a plan for entitlement reform from these candidates I will be voting for none of them.

  2. How much does assessor pay?

    Does she realize the State Senate only pays $67k and is a 3.5 hour commute?

    I want to see Wilcox out-debate her and expose how out of touch she is with the average citizen of McHenry County.

    This will be entertaining!

  3. The “round mound” has been busy recruiting candidates for all offices!

    Republican voters and most current County Board members who supported the “round mound” deserve a round of applause.

  4. She will do a great job for the state of Illinois and people of McHenry County.

  5. How refreshing to see someone who is so dedicated to our county run for office.

  6. “She”Lk do a great job for the state and the people of McHenry County”

    Haha! says Jack Franks or his boat h minion, Kevin Craver!

    She’ll do great for the people like she has as the over-assessing Assessor?

    Like she did for the people in McHenry when she said “those people on the river are gonna PAY!” And pay thru the nose they do!

    She’s much like Bergen-Schmidt- a sour Old Puss!

  7. Would she double dip if elected?

    Would she keep her assessor pay plus senate pay?

  8. I agree; the first commenter of this story must be the elephant in the room…politically speaking of course…tic, tock, tic, tock…
