So what happens if McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren does not quit before it’s too late to put someone on the ballot for the fall 2012 election
- (before filing begins,
- during filing or
- while the GOP Precinct Committeemen still have time to put someone on the fall ballot).
That’s the option we are reduced to if Nygren resigns after 28 months before the end of his term on December 1, 2014.
The answer is a County Board appointment.
That could, of course, be Nygren’s Undersheriff Andy Zinke.
