Candidate can't serve two masters
I just learned that Arne Waltmire, candidate for McHenry County College trustee, is IEA Region 23 chairman, which includes the MCC faculty and adjunct faculty unions. He has not disclosed this information in any of his campaign materials. How can he possibly represent the voters with honesty and clarity when he appears unwilling to fully represent himself? This lack of transparency translates to a lack of respect for the voters.
By running for MCC Trustee he wants to be both labor and management at the same time. This is a conflict that will prevent his full and fair representation with the issues on either side. Refusals would not help: he would be leaving an empty board seat more often than not.
I am choosing Molly Walsh, Chris Jenner and Tom Wilbeck for a transparent, fiscally responsible, taxpayer respectful change of management at MCC.
