Yesterday, I told of Rich Evans’ filing his intention to run for the Republican nomination for county auditor as a write-in candidate.
Today, let’s complete the topic by looking at the other eight write-ins.
They are all for precinct committeeman.
I’ve done two articles on precinct committeeman filings. The first was written the Friday before the Monday filing deadline.
The second was after that deadline.
Former Democratic Party chairman Patrick Ouimet, who resigned that chairmanship for health reasons, must be feeling better. He is running for precinct committeeman in Dorr Township, precinct 12.
The other seven candidates are running on the Republican ticket.
With the word “township” left out of the precinct names, here they are:
- Alden – James Briscoe.
- Algonquin 6 – Richard Evans. Evans has previously served the precinct as committeeman and is running as a write-in for county auditor.
- Burton 2 – Sue Serdar. The Spring Grove resident is head of the pro-life political action committee in McHenry County.
- Dorr 12 – Perry Moy. Moy, of course, owns Plum Garden Restaurant in McHenry and can be seen “on the road” at many local festivals. He served on the county board. He was the first Chinese American to do so. He was defeated by Democrat Jim Kennedy. He also was the last Republican to run against State Rep. Jack Franks.
- McHenry 27 – Bob Koehl. Kroehl is a trustee in the Village of Lakemoor.
- McHenry 35 – Brendan Murphy. Murphy challenged central committee vice chairman Bill Mack, but withdrew. I’m told this is a newly created precinct.
- Nunda 4 – Tom Baur. Baur is a member of the Island Lake Police Pension Board.
