I see four candidates for Congress were present or representated.
From the 16th District, incumbent Republican Don Manzullo had a statement read by McHenry Right to Carry Association President Lou Rofrano. Challenging Democrat George Galrapp spoke for himself.
In the 8th District, incumbent Democrat Melissa Bean was a no-show. Republican Joe Walsh came in person and Green Party candidate Bill Scheurer had a statement read.
Democratic Party candidate for McHenry County Sheriff Mike Mahon spoke early on. Green Party candidate for Sheriff Gus Philpott was slotted in the middle.
Incumbent Republican Sheriff Keith Nygren is not listed on the agenda. Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran had a statement read on his behalf, as did his Demcoratic Party opponent Doug Roberts.
For state representative, the southern McHenry County district now represented by Republican Mike Tryon saw him speaking for himself. Challenging Democrat Robert Kaempfe sent a statement to read.
Incumbent Democrat Jack Franks was apparently a no-show, but his Republican opponent John O’Neill spoke.
Lake County’s State Senator Michael Bond is listed on the agenda. His opponent, Suzi Schmidt, had a statement read.
Nick Provenzano, seeking to return to the McHenry County Board, also spoke to the crowd.

If you would like some facts about the effectiveness of the proposal after which the association is named, I would suggest reading the third edition of “More Guns, Less Crime” by John Lott.
