Compensation of McHenry County Employees for 2020-21: Pe-Re — 5 Comments

  1. Traitor Prim and his ‘skim’

    William P. Prim * Sheriff $183,036.56

  2. Union jailer up 10% in one year, who the *uck is representing/negotiating these deals for the people?

  3. Prim will ride off into the Arizona sunset with some nice pension thefts …. until the great reset when Illinois is allowed to go bankrupt under statutory amendments.

    Then he gets clipped like the Detroit public ‘servants’ who had sky high pensions.

  4. Bill Prim is not enrolled in the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund as Sheriff.

  5. I spoke with Sheriff Prim last September and asked him if he was going out west after he got out of office and he said he was thinking about staying here.

    And I’m pretty sure Cal is correct, he chose to not take a pension from being our Sheriff.

    I respect this man and am grateful he chose to serve as our Sheriff. He could have stayed retired and enjoyed time with his family and friends.

    Instead he stuck around to keep our county safe.

    I personally thanked him for that.

    With all the “Police Hate” that has been going around these last number of years, I think we should consider thanking our law enforcement officers next time we see any of them.

    I have been doing that.

    My dad and many of my friends were police officers.

    Don’t forget the Sheriff Forum this Friday.

    We get to hear from Robb and Tony as to why they should be elected as our next Sheriff.

    My wife and I are going to attend.
