Today, after the rain stopped, I found four Democrats walking a precinct in Lake in the Hills.
One of them was McHenry County Board member Jim Kennedy, who is up for re-election in District 5. He is running against fellow incumbent Tina Hill and John Jung, who was defeated by Paula Yensen two years ago, as well as Green candidate Frank Wedig.
The four were passing out literature for Congressional candidate George Gaulrapp and Lisa Madigan as well. At least that was the literature in the plastic bag I was given.
On both sides of Kennedy’s literature, the words “An Independent Voice” is prominent.
Here’s the text:
An Independent Voice
for McHenry County Board
Common sense and respect for working families will ensure government serves everyone fairly.
I make decision based on what’s right, not what’s popular or politically safe.
- I continue to support transparency in local government. The public deserves to know how we make decisions.
- I have fought against county budget increases, and will continue to vote against tax hikes.
- I will work to give businesses in McHenry County a fair chance to win county contracts.
- I support the comprehensive 2030 land use plan.
The format is similar to that of Lori McConville’s. I invite you to compare the content.
Here’s the side where the address will be found when it is delivered to people’s mailboxes in the next nine days:
You see the posed shot of the four campaigners at the top of the story. Do you like it better than the informal one below?
