Seeing Chris Covelli on the news Wednesday night with regard to the indictment of Fox Lake’s GI Joe’s wife reminded me that I met him at State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally’s Meet and Greet last week at Crystal Lake Rib House.
Her write-in running mate Jim Cosler also won a seat on the Village Board.
Chris Covelli is a Detective with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office and serves as the Departmental Spokesman.
He has been getting a lot of publicity on Chicago television.
And he is a respected law enforcement officer.
So, let’s do some speculation.
Might Covelli be a candidate for McHenry County Sheriff when Bill Prim decides to retire?
Through his wife, he already has a political base in Cary.
By serving as a Republican Committeeman (he has no opponent), Covelli can develop a network of GOP activists.
