A message from Mike Skala

Thank you for visiting my web site. I created this site so the people I want to serve can learn about my previous accomplishments and also about my goals for the future of McHenry County. As you can see, I have set this site up to be interactive. Please use the “Contact/Help Mike” link on this page. Let me know what you like about McHenry County. Let me know what you don’t like. Tell me how you think the county should best go about improving the quality of life for its residents. I will do my best to respond to all correspondences in a reasonable timeframe.

I have been a public servant for 14 years as a member and as President of the District 158 Board of Education. In that role I have been an advocate for the families and taxpayers in Huntley, Lake in the Hills, Algonquin, Lakewood and Union. I have worked very hard to balance what is best for students with what is best for taxpayers. Whether I am working with board colleagues, listening to residents who have concerns, or working collaboratively with local municipal and county leaders, I have always done my best to make this part of McHenry County the best it can be. To that end, I believe the skills I utilized in helping District 158 become the high achieving district it is today can also be used to help keep McHenry County a desirable place to live, work and raise a family.

I also own a small business with offices in Huntley and Woodstock. These last few years have been very difficult and I am keenly aware that business owners are having a hard time meeting financial obligations with a decreasing amount of money coming in. Just as members of the private sector have had to decrease their spending, I believe there are ways that McHenry County can cut spending and lessen the burden on the taxpayers without sacrificing the quality of service that we have all come to expect and enjoy.

I have accomplished a great deal during my time on the District 158 board and am looking forward to taking this exciting next step in public service life. I would appreciate your vote on March 20.
