Four challenges of petitions of people running for Republican Precinct Committeeman have been filed.
Two are in one precinct, Dunham Township. Dunham Township had not had a committeeman for years until Melissa Denker decided to run there.
Now, William R. Parker, filed petitions for the same position.
Each is challenging the other’s petitions.
Appointed Committeeman Eric Sivertsen is on the ballot this year in McHenry 29. He is challenging his opponent John Doles.
Sivertsen, representing himself, withstood a challenge to his candidacy for McHenry County College Board brought by the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office. Another challenged candidate, Chris Jenner, had attorney Bob Wagner presenting his defense. Sivertsen won election to McHenry Grade School District 15’s Board.
The final challenge is to the petition of 18-year old Fox River Grove aspirant Jenna Wing in Algonquin 45. She was the inspiration for the Saturday meeting at FRG Penara’s with GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner.
Bonnie Duresa filed the objection. Richard J. Duresa is Wing’s opponent for Precinct Committeeman.
Hearings will be held Friday, December 13th at 2 PM in room 104A in the County Administration Building.
