Nunda Township Republican Central Committee Chairman Mike Shorten is being challenged for Precinct Committeeman by Joe Gottemoller, the McHenry County Board Chairman and candidate for the GOP nomination for the at-large election for that post this fall.
After seeing some precinct letters published, Shorten wrote me asking for his to be posted as well.
Part of his email had me laughing out loud (I’ve put what amused me in boldface type):
…also sent multiple automated calls to my precinct trying to overcome my opposition who apparently has some name recognition of some sort... although I’ve used these in years past as a way to reach voters and remind them about early voting, election day etc.
Shorten also has a palm card.
