McHenry County GOP Leader Has $6,500 in Chairman’s Circle PAC

In my comparison of the resources of the Republican and Democratic Parties in McHenry County, I just revealed what is in the official party treasuries.

The Democrats look as if they have more. They reported having $7,620.53 at the end of March. I pointed out, that figure had already been augmented by their annual Jefferson Day Dinner.

The Republicans reported having $7,188.71 in the bank.

Mike Tryon

But, since at least McHenry County Treasurer Bill LeFew was Republican Party Chairman there has been a hidey hole for big contributors.

Current Chairman Mike Tryon calls his the McHenry County Chairman’s Circle (MCCC). It’s officers are

  • Mike Tryon – Chairman
  • Ken Koehler – Treasurer

Previously, Blake Hobson served as Vice Chairman.

The fund received $2,925 in contributions below the identification level and $8,625 above the $150 level.

$11,550 in all during the first three months of the year.

Below are the contributors made public:

  • $1,200 – Robert & Paula Gray, Prairie Grove
  • $1,200 – John & Heather Horeled, Crystal Lake
