A funny thing happened at the last McHenry County Public Health Committee meeting.
Recommended to the County Board to fill a vacancy on the McHenry County Mental Health Board was Sam Melei.
There was a vacancy, so that someone was recommended is not of particular interest.
What was interesting is that Melie is the Vice Chairman of the McHenry County Democratic Party Central Committee.
One would expect Democratic Party Board member Paula Yensen would have known that. After all her husband is Chairman of McHenry County Democrats.
What was more interesting is that Sandra Salgado provided the vote for Anna May Miller’s motion of recommendation to pass.
Salgado is seeking the chairmanship of the McHenry County Republican Central Committee.
And, if one goes back a year or so, one might remember that Scott Summers, who ran for County Board in District 6 as a Democrat also was approved by the Committee.
He, however, was rejected by the full County Board.
The rumor floating around was that he might run for Judge against Michael Feetterer.
That was absurd on its face, because Summers does not even live in the same district as Feetterer.
