Only hard core political types will probably be interested in the new county board map for the Southeast McHenry County.
So, if you are thinking you might want to run for the office, take a look.
Here’s District 2, which is represented by McHenry County Board Chairman Ken Koehler, Scott Breeden, Jim Heisler and Donna Kurtz. It looks pretty compact.
District 1 certainly is not compact. In the current version, it stretches from Fox River Grove to Algonquin. In the new version, it goes from Fox River Grove to Lake in the Hills.
District 5 continues to include all of Dorr Township, where most of Woodstock is, and to go all the way south to the Kane County line. Route 14 is still its western boundary in Grafton Township.
I asked Democrat Paula Yensen for her reaction.
She replied, “I ended up in District 5. I am happy the Legislative Committee listened to my concerns.”
District 3 dips deeper in Algonquin Township. Before only one precinct in Oakwood Hills was used to pact more people into the Nunda Township-dominated district.
Now Algonquin Township precincts with Crystal Lake and Cary addresses have been added.
The district lines as they exist now can be seen below:
