Mary Mahady: Hard Working, Fair and Accountable
The County Clerk's most important responsibility is to ensure the integrity of the election process. I am running for the position of McHenry County Clerk because voters need a person who will do the work to restore trust in the system. All elections are important, but especially those for local office, since they have the most direct effect on our daily lives. In many cases, an election is determined by just a few votes.
We cannot afford to have doubts about the way our elections are conducted and managed, but those doubts have begun to creep into McHenry County's elections. I will make sure the ballots are correct, the election judges are properly trained, and voting is accessible to all eligible voters.
My candidacy comes from a career in real estate, and real estate assessment. The McHenry Township Assessor's office and the Board of Review gave me invaluable training for recognizing the need to critically analyze issues and solve problems. Especially relevant were my service to the committees of ethics, professional standards, and education. These experiences have strengthened my desire to participate in a full and fair democratic process.
I humbly ask for your support.
