Here is a letter that District 6 McHenry County Board member Ersel Schuster is sending to prospective voters.
It has the advantage of being stuffed with relevant information about the election.
It has the disadvantage of having a lot of words that marginal voters won’t plow through.
Ersel Schuster, Candidate
McHenry County Board – District 6
58 Autumn Glen Dr., Unit 103 – Harvard, IL 60033
815-338-2207 – firstname.lastname@example.org
No doubt you have received the ugly, and very expensive, campaign “hit” pieces and “robo calls” against
- Joe Tirio,
- Orville Brettman and myself,
- Ersel Schuster.
There will be more of the same on the way!
While unidentified, those behind the attacks are so desperate and frightened of us, they will spare no costs, and will go to any length to discredit, malign and distort reality.
We welcome questions and ask that you go to our websites where you can see that what is being said, is the exact opposite of our personal experiences, philosophies and goals for the positions we seek.
The McHenry County board is in turmoil and well on the way to becoming a clone of Chicago politics and headed for the same financial condition.
The board claims to have reduced your tax levy by 11.2%. Simply put, this is smoke-n’-mirrors.
They did NOT reduce the 2018 levy.
For the past 15+ months, the majority of McHenry County Board Members, our representatives, have repeatedly abdicated their responsibilities as they have been cowed into submission to deliver outcomes desired by one individual.
Barnes, Kurtz, Heisler, Rein, Thorsen, Walkup, Wheeler and Wilcox stand out as willing to follow the Rules and work for us.
Board members who question and challenge the inappropriate, and unethical manner in which our county government is being run, have systematically been singled out, shouted down and their personal lives and businesses have been targeted; all to deliver the message that they need to back down and fall into line.
This is easily verified by listening to the audio/video recordings of the board meetings; through written threats, and men picketing members’ place of employment and businesses.
In 35+ years observing county government, I have never witnessed anything like this.
Past McHenry County Boards have worked hard to move the county from a less than financially stable condition, to a AAA bond rated position.
We cannot afford to re-elect members who ignore their own Board Rules and totally disrespect us, the taxpayers.
It is time to make the effort and to make your vote count on March 20th.

As always, I am available to answer your questions and encourage you to phone or email me.
