To the editor:
The question for the state's attorney race is: "Who will better
serve the interests of the community in this very important office?"
As one who has had some contact with Mr. Huyett in his role as
state's attorney, let me say that I have not been personally
impressed either with his attitude or his conduct as an officer of
As an elected official of the citizens of Logan County, Mr.
Huyett is expected to be an advocate on their behalf, and open to
contact from said citizenry. On several occasions, I personally
contacted the office of Mr. Huyett and was "back-burnered," never to
have my concerns nor questions addressed. I do not appreciate being
treated in such a manner, nor, I believe would anyone else.

I and my fellow landlords have a grave concern with regard to the
prosecution of those who damage our property and write bad checks.
While I understand that Mr. Huyett's hands are somewhat tied by the
statutes of the state with regard to these issues, I have been given
to understand that other counties in central Illinois have been
given grant money to pursue those who have written fraudulent
checks. I understand that such grant money is available to Logan
County as well.
In contrast, Michael McIntosh has promised to address these
concerns and be open to the constituency that elected him. Based on
my own personal contact and belief in the character of Mr. McIntosh
and his promises to us as to how he will conduct the business of the
office of the state's attorney, I would like to take this
opportunity to endorse Michael McIntosh as state's attorney.
