Cal Skinner – new blogger in town…

In 2002, I had the honor of being the campaign manager for Cal Skinner’s Libertarian gubernatorial campaign. Actually, Cal was the real campaign manager – I kind of just tagged along for the ride, gleaning whatever bits of political wisdom I could from this master.

For those of you who don’t know who Cal Skinner is, he was an 8 term Republican state legislator here in Illinois, representing each of two different districts for four terms. Prior to that, he served as the McHenry County Treasurer and also worked for the US Budget Bureau. He has a Bachelors degree in Economics and a Masters Degree in Public Administration. As far as government goes, Cal is someone who has really “been there and done that”.

That election is old news and there’s not much I want to say about it now (other than, in a just world, Cal would have won that election in a walk). But I did want to introduce my readers to Cal’s latest project, The McHenry County Blog. In this blog, Cal will be commenting on various political and tax issues (especially tax issues) that crop up in McHenry County, Illinois. His writings should be of much interest to people who live there and also for those who want to see how a truly knowledgeable person views the workings of local government.

Welcome to the blogosphere Cal, I’m sure your blog will make a great contribution.
