I’ve written previously that McHenry County Board member Donna Kurtz was appointed March 29th as a precinct committeeman in Algonquin Township Precinct 20. (She lives in Crystal Lake Mayor Aaron Shepley’s precinct. Algonquin 10.)
That was before Central Committee Chairman Mike Tryon won re-election to the post.
On May 15th, after Kurtz was the main speaker at the candidacy kick-off for Independent State Rep. candidate Dee Beaubien, she was removed from the appointed committeeman post. No replacement was named for the precinct whose houses are roughly between the Crystal Lake Plaza and Crystal Lake Central.
Today I noticed some similar activity in Dorr Township.
When I last dipped into the condition of its Central Committee, I noted that there were four precinct committeemen from McHenry County Board member Tina Hill’s address.
That struck me as a sign of weakness in the GOP in the Woodstock area.
Bjorn GE Mattson has replaced Casey Hill in Dorr 4.
And, Alan Hill has been replaced by newly-appointed Regional Superintendent of Education Leslie Schermerhorn in Dorr 6.
One almost needs a score card to keep track of the substitutions.
Dorr 3 is still vacant, so there’s still a place for a volunteer.
And, I’m sure the other precinct committeemen would welcome help.
