Democrat Jeff Thirtyacre Seeks Write-in Route to Run against Republican Barb Wheeler for State Representative
Spring Grove Democrat Jeff Thirtyacre has filed papers with the McHenry County Clerk’s Office to run as a write-in candidate for this party’s nomination for State Representative in the 64th District.
To win the write-in contest, he must get as many votes as signatures he would have to have gotten on petitions–500.
Thrityacre has run unsuccessfully for the McHenry County Board twice and Burton Township Road Commissioner.
He works for the Illinois Department of Transportation out of the Woodstock garage.
If he gets on the ballot, he will face off against McHenry County Board member Barb Wheeler, who is the Republican Party’s candidate.
I emailed him last night asking why he wanted the Democratic Party nomination, but have not gotten a reply.
