With apologies to Connie Francis.
I went around doing what ex-State Reps. ought to be doing the day after election–picking up signs.
Gathered signs for 13 candidates and let them know where they were.
Now comes Glen Swanson with information about where missing signs in Algonquin are located:
I’m sure many candidates are wondering where their signs went and were thinking about foul play among their rivals. Well I identified the problem and reported it to the States Attorneys Office as a complaint.
The Village of Algonquin removed the signs despite them being outside the no electioneering zone.
While they did not put them back up, they allowed anybody to pick them up by their fenced in dumpster area and put the signs back up.
I retrieved about 100 signs of the candidates I supported.
They removed signs were not from just the Village Hall property but also the libraries, schools and even some from Light of Christ church.
As I pulled signs I noticed signs of all candidates so if anybody has a beef, the candidates should look no farther than the Village of Algonquin.
I still have some signs unaccounted for.
But I only pulled signs from one of their dumpster areas.
I included some photos of their fenced in dumpster area by the Village Hall.
The signs were removed before 9 am and no explanation was given or resolved until around noon.
If anybody has questions I urge them to consult the officials at Algonquin Village Hall or the McHenry States Attorney office for additional details.
