Patrick Murfin and Meredith Reid Sarkees, candidates for Nunda Township Trustee, are following in the footsteps of their Algonquin Township Democratic Party candidates for the same office.
The main difference is that if the Nunda Township challengers win, they won’t take control of the Nunda Township Board.
It the three Algonquin Township Democrats are victorious, they will control the township board.
The Algonquin Township postcard urges readers to “vote the three at the top, then stop.”
In much smaller print, the Nunda Township mailing says,
No more business as usual.
No more closed club.
The People’s business first.

Crystal Lake is in four townships. The two major ones are Algonquin and Nunda. The horizontal dividing line is Crystal Lake Avenue. The western part of Crystal Lake (west of our home in Lakewood on Meridian Street, in fact, is Grafton Township. The far Northwestern corner is in Woodstock-dominated Dorr Township.)
