She said she would let people know whether she was running for re-election by September 3rd, the first day for passing petitions.
When I called this morning, McHenry County Clerk Katherine Schultz told me,
“It’s been long enough.
“I’m 71 and I’ll be 73 when this term runs out.”
She said that if she had decided to run again, she would have committed to serving the full four years.
“Seventy-seven is way too old.”
Schultz started working in the Clerk’s Office under Vernon Kays on October 16, 1959, having graduated from Woodstock High School that year.
