Last Thursday night McHenry County State’s Attorney candidate Patrick Kenneally held a free event, complete with excellent food, at the Crystal Lake Rib House.
Tomorrow he holds a $40 fundraiser at the Turnberry County Club in Lakewood from 5:30-7:30.
The free event was crowded, as you can see from the photos that will appear here.
The agenda was meeting and greeting and gathering addresses, phone numbers and email addresses until Kenneally spoke.
After being introduced by McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi, as he was at his announcement event at the same location, Kenneally repeated the story of his first day at work.
He told of nervously going into Bianchi’s office with a notepad and being told notes would not be necessary.
Bianchi told him that all he required of his employees was that they “do the right thing.”
Kenneally on Thursday, as he did when he announced, told the crowds that was his goal.
He also talked about Mayor Rudy Giuliani, described as one of the best prosecutors.
“He took on the mob,” Kenneally said.
“He had a sign above his office–‘Everyone is accountable all the time.’
“In this age of general relativism and overriding In this age of general relativism and overriding commitment to self,”
Kenneally continued, “the worst thing any body can do is to let the misguided and selfish few that violate the law, get away with it.
“It is the worst thing for
- the victim and
- the defendant,”
