This morning I published an article suggesting that as President of the Huntley School District 158 School Board, Mike Skala would be a strong possibility to replace his ally State Rep. Mike Tryon (R-Crystal Lake).
That assumed that Tryon would decided to move to the northern McHenry County district which was stretches from just south of Crystal Lake to Antioch to include Lake County State Rep. JoAnn Osmond’s home.
This afternoon, I received the following email from Skala:
“I was called by the NWH about your article so I looked it up and read what your thoughts were.
“Given that my children are still young and I am very active in coaching and their lives, I would not run for any position that would require me to be away from my family so much as a State Representative position would require.
“I do support Mike Tryon because I feel that he is an excellent Representative in Springfield. I am extremely happy that he will still be my Representative based on the new map so I can continue to support him.
“I appreciate your consideration for the position, but it will need to wait for future times.”
So someone whom it seemed to be would be a frontrunner, if Tryon decided to move has withdrawn from consideration.
