I went over to the McHenry County Republican Headquarters and found my and my father’s old office in the tip of the V at the Crystal Lake Plaza had been opened up.
I went in to get some Peter Roskam bags into which I’ll stuff the literature from the District 2 McHenry County Board candidates. (See “Northwest Herald Turns Up the Heat on Three Crystal Lake County Board Members Who Voted to Maximize Tax Bill.”)
I found people getting ready to go door-to-door with a door knob hanger featuring State Senate candidate Karen McConnaughay and County Board Chairman Ken Koehler.
There were mainly members of the McHenry County Young Republicans.
They had been recruited to blitz precincts for State Senate candidate Karen McConnaughay and Ken Koehler, who is running for re-election to the McHenry County Board.
The goal is to cover the 25 overlapping precincts, mainly in Crystal Lake and Lake in the Hills with the campaign piece you see below:
McConnaughay, having given a pep talk, off to a similar gathering in Huntley.
