The choice for McHenry County Board in District 4 is crystal clear after the board held its last meeting.

On July 15th, Arne Waltmire stood before the board and asked them to allow McHenry County voters to weigh in on whether they'd like to cut the board from 24 to 16 members, which could save over $300,000 a year.

Waltmire's opponent, John Hammerhand, voted to block the measure and deny McHenry citizens a vote on this common-sense tax saving proposal.

Waltmire's other opponent, Charles Wheeler, didn't even bother to show up to the meeting. If Wheeler can't even be bothered to come and speak up regarding one of the most important issues to face the board in years, how can we trust him to represent us?

Arne Waltmire's a 30-year educator and certified arbitrator who has private and public sector work experience. Arne's a longtime resident of the county.

For several months, he's going door to door campaigning to downsize the board because it will save money for taxpayers without hurting vital public services or job creation. Waltmire also has plans to make the county board more transparent and accessible.

Join me in November in voting for Arne Waltmire for McHenry County Board District 4.
