Give your opinion to the Northwest Herald today (Sunday)

There is a reader poll on the online version of the Northwest Herald today regarding a fund to provide services to developmentally-disabled persons in McHenry County. I believe this would be a 377 Board.

This would be similar to the 708 Board for provides funding for the McHenry County Mental Health Board.

Please go to right away (today, Sunday) and vote in the reader poll at the bottom right of the homepage. (I have suggested to the Northwest Herald that they move the poll up to top right, where readers would find it, but they must like it where it is.) As of 7:07PM only 249 readers have voted.

Here's their question today: "Would you support a local tax for the developmentally disabled?"

The property with a blanket question like that is this. How much of a local tax? Some people will say No to any tax. Others would be willing to pay a tax, but not over a certain amount.

How much is the current tax for the 708 Board for mental health services?

I'm all for supporting the mentally challenged. Walgreens has a great program that hires and trains those with physical and/or mental disabilities.

Besides- neither you or I would get hired there cuz we be tooooo mentally disabled! DOH!
