With Tina Hill running for McHenry County Recorder of Deeds instead of County Board next year, one of the folks planning to run for the office is Joe Calomino, a Republican Precinct Committeeman in Lake in the Hills.
I saw him outside the County Board meeting Tuesday, but didn’t have time to talk.
I asked him via email if he were running for the District 5 post.
Below is his reply:
The answer is yes – I made the decision about 10 days ago after conferring with a variety of folks in the county and of course my family. I was going to let you know today at the county building but I was on a call at the time.
I will be out of pocket the next couple of days with some pre-arranged plans to visit friends out of state. I’ll be back in town Saturday – hitting the street to obtain the remainder of my signatures and talk with the voters. I’ll be happy to chat with you when I return if you like.
In the meantime, I’ve attached a walk piece I have been handing out while going door to door. I hope that this piece helps to provide you some insight into my background and accomplishments.
After years of traveling the state on behalf of Republican candidates and causes, I am excited for the opportunity to serve in my home county. I believe my diverse intergovernmental and watchdog activities uniquely position me to address the pressing issues facing the McHenry County Board and McHenry County taxpayers.
