Under state law, McHenry County Republican Central Committee Chairman Mike Tryon has the authority to appoint people Precinct Committeeman in precincts where no one ran in the primary.
He did so for two dozen empty precincts before he was re-elected and McHenry County Blog reported the names here.
Noticed today with the help of a friend of McHenry County Blog are three new appointees and removal of an appointed committeeman.
- CHEMUNG 3 – Michael Clarke (Appt 5/5/12), Harvard
- BURTON 2 – Sue Serdar (Appt 5/10/12), Spring Grove
- ALGONQUIN 28 – George Jost (Appt 5/2/12), Lake in the Hills
- ALGONQUIN 20 – Donna Kurtz (Appt 3/29/12) Rem 5/15/12, Crystal Lake
Presumably Kurtz was removed because of her strong support for Independent Dee Beaubien over Republican victor in the 52nd District, Dave McSweeney.
Tryon said during the convention that he would remove anyone who had been appointed, if they did not support the entire Republican ticket.
