A friend of McHenry County Blog has forwarded an invitation to Democrat State Rep. Jack Franks’ September 29th fundraising breakfast at Donley’s Wild West Town.
The Jesse White Tumblers will perform.
As usual Franks provides a list of those who have agreed to be on his Host Committee.
Unlike last year, GOP Sheriff Keith Nygren is not on the list.
But Woodstock Mayor Brain Sager still is.
He’s there with Chicago Democratic Party Ward Committeeman and Alderman Ed Burke.
Last year, such sponsorship was less significant than this year.
Then, Sager was only a minor cog in the McHenry County Republican Party, a Precinct Committeeman from Greenwood Township Precinct 6.
The mayoral post is non-partisan.
Sure, I’ve written that I believe he wishes to run for Franks’ seat when Franks runs for something else, but his official role is that a GOP Precinct Committeeman.
This year, Sager
- was recruited to run as an Alternative Delegate by State Treasurer Dan Rutherford,
- was elected and
- is just returning from the National Republican Convention.
Looking for Republican County Board member candidates, I see far fewer than last year.
Randy Donley, who is retiring this year is listed.
There is a listing for “Bob & Judi Martens.” I do not know if that is the District 4 candidate listed on the ballot as “Robert Martens Sr.”
