McHenry County Blog read one set of soggy tea leaves correctly.
Now, I’ve read some wrong and I’ll fess up that when time allows, but on February 4th, the Northwest Herald passed up an opportunity to mention State Rep. Kent Gaffney’s name favorably.
He called to abolish of the State of Illinois Air Force, oops, Executive Fleet.
Actually, we budget types think alike.
When I served on a cost-containment task force for Governor Jim Thompson, I suggested pretty much the same thing.
It went nowhere, of course, because state Directors, Statewide Officials and General Assembly biggies don’t like to drive to and from Springfield.
It’s a real drag.In any event, there was an editorial, which you can withdraw from the NWH’s news bank for $2.95, which praised the idea, but didn’t mention Gaffney.
Uh-oh, I thought.
Could this mean the Northwest Herald would not endorse Gaffney?
And, when I got an email from Dave McSweeney’s campaign, here was what was on top:
Northwest Herald Endorses McSweeney
Of the three candidates in the Republican primary race for the 52nd District representative, David McSweeney is the best option to provide taxpayers with a strong, independent voice for fiscal reform.
Danielle Rowe is the third candidate in the race.
