Dear Algonquin Township Committeemen:
I am a fellow Republican precinct committeeman and am running to represent you as your State Central Committeeman for the 6th Congressional District. This is an open seat with no incumbent. There is a lot more information about me, my background, my philosophy and why I’m running at http://www.markostern.com/.
McHenry County is a vital part of the 6th District, and although there is no candidate from Kane, Lake or McHenry, I want to represent every precinct and I take nothing for granted. I will be calling each of you shortly (if I have your number) to ask personally for your support at the county convention on April 16, and am planning to attend your township meeting on April 9. I look forward to meeting you, but please feel free to call me at any time at 630-407-7330 (cell) or e-mail me if you have any questions.
Thanks very much for your consideration.
Mark O. Stern
