Virginia Visin retired.
Incumbents Rob Routzahn and Ruth Scifo ran for re-election.
Pretty similar to the MCC Board of Trustees’ contest.
A former principal, Betsy Les was the third of what I have dubbed “the incumbent slate” for the District 47 Board.
Running from the outside were Donna Ricci and Eileen Palsgrove.
Les had lots of signs, four-by-four foot and regular yard signs.
Routzahn and Scifo shared yard signs. There were a good number.
I saw one joint sign for Ricci and Palsgrove.
That was Donna Ricci.
She asked for and received permission to speak to the Nunda Township Republican candidates’ night crowd.
Besides that and the signs, the only campaigning I saw was a post card.
It was sent on behalf of Ricci and Palsgrove by the Pro-Life Victory Committee.
I assume the Crystal Lake Elementary Teachers Association, CLETA, informed its members of its favorites.
The list used was probably the same one that Arne Waltmire used for his McHenry County College campaign mailing that hit my precinct on the Saturday before the election.
Waltmire is the Regional Director of the Illinois Education Association, but he came in seventh of nine candidates in the MCC Board of Trustees race.
