It’s an off year for politics.
The major partisan elections are next year.
Maybe that’s the reason.
Jack Franks’ tent is near the entrance, but he wasn’t there so I didn’t take a photo. (Later I was told he was answering Chicago media calls about Metra Chairman Brad O’Hallonan’s resignation.)
Inside the buildings, the first display was that of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department. No sign of Sheriff Keith Nygren or Undersheriff Andy Zinke.
Next I came upon the booth of the McHenry County Democratic Party. As I was standing there, Chairman Mike Bissett and Denise Barreto came.
Around the corner was the booth for the McHenry County Citizens for Choice.
Young Republicans were manning the McHenry County Republican Party booth.
Congressman Randy Hultgren has a booth manned by McHenry County Board member Nick Provenzano.
Kelly Liebmann and Jim Young were challenging people at the Libertarian Party booth.
On the other side of the building was Johnsburg’s 1st Way Pregnancy Support Services.
Down the row was the pro-life display of Peter’s Net.
The McHenry County Deanery was across the aisle.
As I walked toward the farm animals I spotted a six-wheeled vehicle with Nygren’s name on it.
On the way out, I stopped at the Knights of Columbus corn on the cob booth. Excellent corn and the group donates to 1st Way Pregnancy Services fund to purchase a ultrasound sonogram machine.
I looked for State Rep. Jack Franks’ tent, but couldn’t find it.
I finally asked an open tent and was told his was next door.
