Some may have noticed the purpose of McHenry County Blog. It’s on the left hand side of the page above my email link.
This is a journal of news and opinion designed to bring to light matters of public interest and to encourage public participation in the governmental process.
The greatest level of participation is running for public office.
Monday night at its Headquarters in the Crystal Lake Plaza next to the Irish Shop, the Algonquin Township Republican Central Committee is holding a seminar on how to win public office.
It is not limited to those interested in running for partisan office, that is, county or office in one of the county’s largest townships.
Those interested in running for school, city, village, park, library, fire protection district or any other board are welcome.
And, those interested in helping others win elections are welcome as well.
Just give Algonquin Township Republican Party Chairman Demetri Tsilimigras a call at 847-532-2025.
The session will be led by Steve Willson, a former Township Trustee in what he calls the Soviet Socialist Republican of Oak Park and the campaign manager for Tom Wilbeck and Chris Jenner when they were elected to the McHenry County College Board.
