It was pizza, cake and Joyce Story fudge that Republicans ate at the Woodstock VFW Thursday night.
They were celebrating the accomplishments of Republicans who won non-partisan races, such as McHenry County College Trustee.
Vice Chairman Andrew Gasser announced that by-laws were being revised.
He also suggested people mark September 10th on their calendars.
That will be the main fundraiser for the County GOP.
He said that a national name was being sought as speaker.
Among those stopping in were McHenry County Treasurer Glenda Miller, Sheriff Bill Prim, County Board members John Jung, Michael Rein, Diane Evertsen, Chuck Wheeler, Nick Provenano, Tina Hill, Donna Kurtz, Sue Draffkorn and Joe Gottemoller.
Newly-elected McHenry County College Board members Karen Tirio and MIke Smith were in attendance. Incumbent Chris Jenner was there, too.
Two newly-elected members of the McHenry County Board of School Trustees–Eric Dowd and Matt Meyer–were mixing with the crowd.
I remember that Hebron Village Trustee Mark Shepherd, just re-elected, was talking with Precinct Committeemen from County Board District 6.
There were certainly others in office or just elected. Perhaps people who know who I have left out will add them in the comment section.
