When I saw Republican Party Grafton Township nominee Bob Wagner in the Courthouse this morning, I asked if the Grafton Township Republican candidates were going to run as a slate as the McHenry Township candidates are.
He didn’t say, “Yes.”
I asked about the “Restore Grafton Township” slate.
“They like me,” he replied.
In driving home from the Courthouse, I passed the property of Wagner’s lawyer buddy Jim Bishop. I saw a lot of Restore signs, plus a white and blue one that just said, “Wagner.”
You can see the blue and white sign below:
I ran some errands and happened to drive past Wagner’s office on Walkup Avenue.
Below you see what I saw:
The Independents only filed three candidates for Trustee:
- Joseph H. Holtorf
- Tamara L. Lueth
- Daniel G. Ziller, Jr.
There are four to be elected.
All are from Huntley. Holtorf was a GOP precinct committeeman in Grafton 27 in 2009. Lueth was elected GOP precinct committeeman in Grafton 4.
They are also running candidates for Supervisor, Assessor and Road Commissioner. The slate has no candidate for Township Clerk.
The Republican winner for Supervisor, Pam Fender, did not fare well in the election returns I saw for six Crystal Lake precincts.
Wagner is a former Mayor of Crystal Lake.
