Non-Establishment candidates for McHenry County Clerk and County Treasurer have gained endorsements from the Daily Herald.
McHenry County Board member Nick Provenzano was favored McHenry County Board member Mary McClellan.
The Provenzano endorsement concludes with
“These are two impressive, well-qualified candidates, but with McClellan still relatively new to politics and Provenzano having plenty of political experience,
“Provenzano would provide better leadership as McHenry County clerk and is endorsed.”
Crystal Lake City Councilman Jeff Thorsen got the nod over Chief Deputy Treasurer and Chemung Township Trustee Glenda Miller.
Zinke gained the endorsement for Sheriff. Here are some of the Daily Herald’s reasons:
“Zinke recently got his MBA, and in talking about department operations can appear to talk coldly about personnel. Nevertheless, with his experience and education, he is well-equipped to become sheriff.”
The conclusion of the Thorsen’s endorsement follows:
“It’s not clear that Thorsen would be able to achieve the cost savings he’s hoping for, but he has studied McHenry County operations and those of the treasurer’s office well from the outside.
“Miller has excellent experience inside and outside the treasurer’s office, but it’s not clear her leadership and management skills can match Thorsen’s.”
