The 2015 State of McHenry County Address

Chairman of the McHenry County Board, the honorable Joe Gottermoller.

This past Tuesday Chairman Joe Gottemoller delivered his State of McHenry County Address to the county board.  Quite frankly, I was so very impressed and pleasantly shocked with the data compiled and presented.  I thought so highly of this that I wanted to present the speech, in its entirety with its slides, to you.

I made a campaign promise to all of you that I would push for transparency.  I am keeping my promise to you.

This is one of those efforts to share with you what we on the board are looking at.  The video is a long one.  In fact, it is the longest video I have ever produced.  There is just so much good information many of us can use to formulate how we look at government locally. The slides are very telling of the problems that are facing McHenry County, and in fact, Illinois.

I have not modified any slide in any way.  I have not modified Chairman Gottemoller’s audio in anyway.  I did try to transition slides where they made sense.  I will talk about this more in the future but I think this is a good 30 thousand foot view

Thank you to Chairman Gottemoller and staff for the help putting this together.
