Weekend Greening of Crystal Lake

At McHenry County College, of all places.

You know, the place where trustees want to build more parking lots and a baseball stadium on Crystal Lake’s watershed.

And continue to allow a farmer to use phosphorus on row crops on the watershed.

And continue to use salt on roads and parking lots in the watershed.

In any event, MCC Board President Scott Summers, 16th district Congressman Don Manzullo’s Green Party opponent has arranged for his party to hold a statewide meeting at the college’s campus.

This is probably a first for McHenry County.

Have you ever heard of any state party holding a meeting in McHenry County?

And, wonder of wonders, I notice there is going to be a Green Party candidate for the McHenry County Board in district 3.

That’s Nunda Township, plus southeastern McHenry Township.

His name is James Geocaris.

Presidential candidate Jared Ball will be available for interviews.

Besides the press conference, there will be a campaign school and a fund raising dinner.

Here’s the press advisory:
