  2. Just McHenry Co. governmental lie 2018-54382.

    “Aunt Martha’s” does alot of ‘work’ with gender dysphoric youth brainwashed in our public schools.

    But ‘Aunt Martha’s’ only reinforces the brainwashing and tells the parents they are the kooks!

  3. AZ, you’re pretty funny!

    RidingTheBeam, if that’s true, we’ve all financed our own doom thanks to the corrupt establishment in McHenry County headed by The Jackal.

    How’d you find this out?

    The outfit’s name ‘Aunt Martha’s Health and Wellness Inc.’ sounds like a racket all right.

    Is Aunt Martha a drag queen on top of it?

  4. Out of towner & Cal, thanks for exposing all this. The Fake News NWH would never do it!

  5. @Out of towner..Can you tell us how that is doled out?

    Is it direct taxpayer levy funded money to the County and then given out to those organizations?

    Or is the County a pass through by means of Federal or State Grants/Allocated Funds?

    By not specifically saying how the County doled out these funds and where they directly come from is only telling a small part of the story.

  6. McHenry County voters approved the funding to be added to your property tax.

    “The Mental Health Board (MHB) is a special purpose unit of the county government that’s regulated through Illinois House Bill 708, also known as the Community Mental Health Act. The Act mandates that the Mental Health Board administer mental health funds, collected through an annual tax levy, through the direction of a nine-member board of community representatives. These representatives are appointed by the County Board. The MHB is responsible for making sure that the duties and responsibilities of the Community Mental Health Act are fulfilled.”

  7. @Out of towner thanks for the explanation!

    The issue I have is that there are 31 different organizations that are getting money from the taxpayers for Mental Health issues!

    Though 501c3’s probably do a much better job at making the dollar stretch longer can someone tell me why these entities don’t form one.

    I’m sure politics are behind it just like everything else but 31 different organizations serving McHenry County!

    Just like the government needs to use less workers and consolidate so does non profits!
