McHenry County Blog has received the following email from Algonquin resident Rich Evans, a CPA who applied for appointment as McHenry County Auditor when Ruth Rooney decided to retire.
Rooney’s deputy, Pam Palmer, was appointed by the McHenry County Board and selected by the McHenry County Republican Central Committee to appear on the fall 2006 ballot.
Here is the email I received:
Dear Members of Illinois Office Holders, Workers, Candidates and Citizens:
I would like to announce a Write In campaign for the position of McHenry County Auditor.
The selection process involved seven candidates who interviewed with the County Board before an appointment was made. The process was manipulated so that there would not be any real vote or complete review to select a CPA for this important position.
So now we have an election on February 5th and I would appreciate your support in the quick campaign and somewhat uphill battle of a Write In Campaign.
Rich Evans CPA
He has a leaflet that contains the following information:
