Into my possession have come six petitions for Grafton Township Office.
Since it is too late to file in the Republican primary, I presume the candidates are running as Indpendents.
The candidate for Supervisor is James A. Kearns.
The candidate for Assessor is Terra Leilani Jensen.
The candidate for Highway Commissioner is Timothy J. Hoeft
The candidates for Trustee are
- Joseph H. Holtorf
- Tamara L. Lueth
- Daniel G. Ziller, Jr.
I have seen no fourth petition for Trustee or one for Clerk.Kearns was the Moderator at the huge Grafton Town Meeting when the coffin nails were hammered into the Trustees’ and Pam Fender’s plan to build a new Township Hall.
Ziller ran a write-in campaign for Trustee based on opposition to a new Town Hall.
Lueth is a past Republican Precinct Committeeman.
All were aligned with Linda Moore in her successful primary campaign four years ago.
Heoft’s father served as Huntley Village Trustee and ran an unsuccessful campaign for Village President. [I incorrectly stated that Hoeft had his father’s pedigree.)
Perhaps others can add details about which I am unaware.
These individuals, assuming they can surmount the very low signature requirement, will be on the ballot along with whoever wins the Republican Primary Election.
If no one runs as an independent candidate for Clerk a write-in candidate in the GOP primary could win the race in the April election.
