There were three places to take pictures of things political Saturday:
- Patriots United Breakfast featuring Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk at D’Andrea’s
- McHenry Chamber of Commerce’s Business Expo< at West High School/li>
- McHenry County Republican Party’s Lincoln Themed Dinner at the Holiday Inn
The easiest to get up is the Expo.
There were three displays by local McHenry entities.
Right on the left at the entrance was city government.
After the administrative side came the police department.
Across the aisle and down a bit was the library district.
Then it was into the gym, where I found Perry Moy and his son Jason promoting Plum Garden. I’ll admit it wasn’t overtly political, but that’s what I discussed with the former McHenry County Board member and candidate for State Representative against Jack Franks.
I passed Nunda Township Supervisor Lee Jennings walking toward the entrance and asked if Nunda Township has a booth. He told it did not, but that he was hanging out at McHenry County Clerk Mary McClellan’s space.
Nest up was State Rep. Jack Franks’ display.
Right next door was the booth for Republican State Senator Pam Althoff.
McHenry County Recorder of Deeds Phyllis Walters had employees staffing a table at the end of the first aisle of the basketball court.
The next booth I saw offers services to women with unplanned pregnancies. It’s not overtly political, but since abortion is a hot-button political issue, I thought it worth taking a picture.
I turned around and there was the State’s Attorney’s booth.
Newly-elected County Clerk Mary McClellan was a couple of spaces away on the other side.
In the next aisle was the Sheriff’s Department.
I turned the final corner and could see the recession is not over.
Instead of displays, there was empty space.
