Reminding me of that not only the Northwest Herald about former State Senator Jack Schaffer’s involvement and, today, finding a political action committee filing on the Illinois State Board of Elections web site.
The Cary Area Citizens for Responsible Government filed registration papers in Springfield the day before the election.
The filing trigger is having raised or spent $3,000.
Listed as chairman of the committee is Schaffer. Mike Rein is the treasurer.
I’m told that only one member of the slate he was backing, Ray Chisholm, won election. The other seats were retained by the incumbents.
Schaffer lives on Spring Beach Road, outside of the village limits, although the precinct he worked for the Republican Party extended into Cary.
