McHenry County Republicans Refusing to Appoint Precinct Committeemen in Dave McSweeney’s & Dan Duffy’s District
Listed below are the precincts in the hotly contested 52nd House race.
That’s where Independent Dee Beaubien, with Democrat Mike Madigan’s help, is challenging Republican primary election winner David McSweeney.
You will note that many precincts are empty.
In addition to McSweeney, State Senator Dan Duffy is running a contested race in the same part of McHenry County.
Campaign finance logic dictates that joint attack mailings will be made against Dave McSweeney and Dan Duffy by the pro-abortion Personal PAC. After all, they are both pro-life and agree on many other issues.
Wouldn’t you think the McHenry County Republican Party would have as its highest priority finding people willing to work for McSweeney and Duffy?
Do they really want another probable vote for Madigan for Speaker to come out of a McHenry County district?
Having demonstrated that a majority of the Committeemen wanted to make sure Democrat Jack Franks could cast his eighth vote for Mike Madigan for House Speaker by their refusal to allow Tonya Franklin the opportunity to challenge him, you can understand why some might make that conclusion.
Do “Actions speak louder than words?”
By looking at the unmanned precincts, one can easily conclude that the Nunda and Algonquin Township Republican Parties have some other agenda that is more important than electing Republicans who will fight Mike Madigan in Springfield.
Under the procedure ostensibly being following County Republican Party Chairman Mike Tryon, a precinct committeeman in Algonquin Township himself, only when a Township GOP Chairman recommends a person will Tryon use the appointment power given to him by State Statute.
So who are the two Township Chairmen?
- Nunda Township Republican Central Committee Chairman (also Vice Chairman of the County GOP organization) Mark Daniel and
- Algonquin Township Republican Central Committee Chairman Rebecca Lee (Township Road Commissioner Bob and County Board member Anna Miller’s daughter)
Wouldn’t you think their highest priority would be to find people willing to help McSweeney and Duffy win the empty precincts?
There are two empty precincts in Nunda Township’s portion of the 52 State Rep. District and fifteen in Algonquin Township.
