That’s the question candidates face if they are doing well.
The latest lie to reach my ears came from Fox River Grove.
A citizen was told that Larry Emery and Melissa Sanchez had voted to raise their own salaries on the Algonquin Township Board.
That’s pretty funny because neither serve on the Algonquin Township Board.
Indeed both are candidates for Township Trustee.
And, perhaps not coincidentally, they are running against two incumbent Township Board members who did vote to raise salaries for Algonquin Township officials.
Those two are Dan Shea and Lowell Cutsforth.
A third incumbent, appointed to the position, Russ Cardelli, led the fight against raising Algonquin Township salaries.
So, what’s it all mean?
I think it means that supporters of the two incumbents who voted to raise salaries are worried they might lose.
In any event, it has not been my experience that one can’t sell a lie in a campaign.
Coincidentally, a mailing arrived today from the slate of Trustee candidates that include Shea and Cutsforth. You can see it below:
