McHenry County Board member Jessica Phillips
The McHenry County Board voted Tuesday evening to postpone consideration of a flag policy that many board members and residents saw as an attempt to stop the county from flying the gay pride flag.
McHenry County Board member Jeffrey Thorsen and other supporters of the policy said the resolution does not target any specific flag or community, something other board members argued isn't true.
Illinois will effectively end immigrant detention and further restrict local law enforcement’s ability to cooperate with federal immigration authorities under a plan Gov. JB Pritzker signed into law Monday.
The policy would limit county buildings to displaying 5 flags and prohibit others, such as the pride flag
‘The processes in place worked as intended to identify and correct the issue,’ McHenry County Board chairman says
