Harley Grets New Desk Last Thursday, March 14, Mc¬ Henry County Supervisors moved into their new chambers on the top floor of the court house in Wood¬ stock. Pictured above, at his new desk, is Harley Mackeben, Grafton Township's representative In this assembly. The McHenry County Board of Supervisors is the township legis¬ lating body similar to the general assembly for the state of Illinois. Its duties are to legislate laws and to take care of the business of the county. Harley Mckeben for the past five years has been chairman of this board. He is now seeking re-elec¬ tion to this office. Every township has one representative for every 5,000 population. On the McHenry county board of supervisors Graf¬ ton township at the present time 'vm$M'—^^^r^0^'' has a population of 4060. Up until this year the requirMnent was based upon 4,000. The new cham¬ bers of the board of supervisors is similar in construction to our federal legislative bodies. Each su¬ pervisor has his own modem steel desk and a microphone placed in front of him. Mr. Mackeben sits in front of the assembly and main¬ tains order. Seated next to him is Vernon Kays .county clerk. In the past all the minutes were taken down in shorthand by a sec¬ retary. Now with the added micro¬ phone, everything said is recorded. In this way no minor detail which might be left out of them inutes will be overlooked. If Mr. Mackeben is re-elected to this office he will be the first man t succeed himself in the poat in the history of McHenry County.
