Another Transparency Effort on McHenry County Board is Voted Down

Both of my opponents voted against transparency and sided with keeping an audit secret.

Another transparency bill was voted down on the McHenry County Board last week.  The bill would have opened up a publicly financed audit on the Nunda Township Road District.  Instead, that audit that YOU paid for is to be remained sealed.

Both of my opponents voted to keep the audit secret.  This is a disturbing trend.  Both of my opponents also voted to shoot down a transparency bill last year as well.

Now the Northwest Herald has weighed in.  Quoting the Northwest Herald:

Good government is a transparent government. Eight board members got it; 14 others did not.

If you believe in transparent government you do have a choice on November 4th.  You can vote for me, Andrew Gasser.  I shall always vote to open the books.  You have a right to know what was found, or not found, on a taxpayer funded audit.

  • I am not taking the healthcare – I have my own
  • I am term limiting myself to two terms – then I am out
