Linda Moore, the woman who came within 14 votes of winning a seat on the Huntley School Board, has thrown her hat in the Grafton Township Supervisor ring.
She is challenging one-term Supervisor John Rossi. Until this past spring, Rossi served as the Grafton Township Republican Central Committee Chairman.
Moore was most recently in the news for re-surfacing the suggestion of using wrist radios on autistic and Down Syndrom children and adults who might wander off.
Moore was a big reason that Seneca Township Supervisor Ersel Schuster won her nomination for McHenry County Board. Moore tirelessly campaigned door-to-door for her.
Grafton Township Republican precinct committeemen decided to hold a primary election this year for the first time. Four years ago, the first time Republicans mounted a slate, nomination was made in a caucus.
If Democrats want to run candidates for township office in Grafton or anywhere else, they will have to conduct a caucus to select them.
In no township are Democrats holding a primary election where their party’s voters can have a say at the ballot box.
