In response to a Sound-off comment made April 1, I have nothing to hide.
The reason I restricted access to my office was we were in the process of mailing out and receiving absentee ballots. Also, we were assisting the St. Clair County State's Attorney Office and the Sheriff's Department in several ongoing investigations into possible vote fraud.
The Sound-off caller is incorrect because County Board Chairman Mark Kern is always welcome in my office, anytime throughout the year.
So my question: Why was this caller trying to stir up trouble before the election?
County Clerk, St. Clair County Belleville
