One of the most politically active unions in McHenry County is Local 150 of the Operating Engineers.
I guess most people wouldn’t be surprised that its members are supporting the re-election of Barack Obama.
There are other signs as well:
The local and legislative candidates with signs near the Local 150 Banquet Hall are the following candidates, all Republican:
- Bonnie Thompson Carter, Lake County Board
- JoAnne Osmond, State Representative
- Linda Petersen, Lake County Board
- Mary McClellan, McHenry County Board
- Mike Nerheim, Lake County State’s Attorney
