To the Editor:
As a 44-year resident and 20-year election judge in McHenry County, I support Mary McClellan for county clerk.
Her opponent, Nick Provenzano, doesn’t have the slightest idea of what’s going on in the county clerk’s office, as pointed out in the Northwest Herald, where he made a ridiculous statement that the clerk’s office has fallen behind times in election technology and ballot access. He also stated he would like to see the election process be faster and install modems on voting machines.
He is a career politician with absolutely nothing to offer. Our tabulators have had modems for the past 14 years, enabling our judges to balance voters ballots hours earlier.
Kathy Schultz initiated these electronic tabulators with modems to accommodate the phenomenal growth that our county has experienced the past 20 years.
Please take the time to vote your support for Mary McClellan for county clerk March 18.
