Graham had no Republican primary challenger. No Democrat filed for the office either.
Wiggins, whose practice is based in Chicago and who lives in Woodstock, decided to run as an Independent. She filed 5,100 signatures. A challenge from Sharon Ann Meroni of Barrington Hills is pending.
Sunday she walked the Wonder Lake Independence Day Parade.
In high heels.
Handing out roses.
I’ve never seen a candidate hand out flowers before.
It is a very interesting campaign gimmick.
The roses are certain to be taken home.
If you think only women got them, you’d be wrong.
And all military were Veterans. Wiggins found this Army woman in Wonder Lake.
Posing for pictures can slow a candidate down.
Parades often move faster than campaigning candidates. Here you see how a woman in high heels catches up.
Not everyone was content to take a rose and a campaign pitch.
But most seem to have been pleased to get a rose, instead of a pamphlet.
As I have mentioned previously, candidates are invited to send photos of their campaign activities. I’ll get some myself at today’s Crystal Lake Independence Day Parade.
