The Primary Elections are over and people are jockeying for township GOP positions.
The first out of the box via email was newly-elected Cary Republican Precinct Committeeman Chris Covelli.
His missive follows:
I wanted to take a brief moment and introduce myself.
We absolutely love our neighborhood and community (everything except the property taxes J)!
At our upcoming Algonquin Township Republican Central Committee annual meeting, I intend on running for the position of Vice-Chairman.
My vision of the future of the Algonquin Township Republican Central Committee is one of inclusion of all Algonquin Township Precinct Committeemen.
While some in our communities don’t feel there is much value in being a precinct committeeman, the reality is quite the opposite, especially when the entire township is working in tandem with each other.
I believe our Central Committee should have defined values and principals we deem as necessary for candidates we support. Local election (Village Board, School Board, etc.) are extremely important, and effect our pocket books, and our quality of life the most.We as a Central Committee, can hold our local elected officials accountable to the communities they serve.
I firmly believe anyone in a position of leadership must possess integrity, respect, and dedication.
These values should be more than just talking points to get elected, but qualities lived on a daily basis.
I take these values to heart and live by them everyday.
I support Andrew Gasser for Chairman.
Andrew, as you likely know, is an extremely hard, diligent worker.
He has made many strides in the Republican Party, throughout McHenry County.
He currently serves as a County Board Member and would bring great leadership and experience to the table.
Jennifer Weinhammer would make a terrific Treasurer.
Jennifer is fiscally conservative, and is not afraid to ask many questions before money is spent, to ensure the spending is necessary.
She believes in a strict budget, and is very qualified to be accountable for the Central Committee’s money accounts.
I support Scott Vetter for Secretary.
Scott closely follows local politics and stands up for conservative principals.
He would bring great leadership as a Veteran of the United States Navy.
He’s an extremely hard and diligent worker, and would utilize those qualities as Secretary.
I firmly believe the four of us, along with all of the hardworking committeemen in Algonquin Township, will make very positive strides in our communities.
If you have any questions, or would like to talk, please feel free to give me a call. My number is: 847-980-0544.
Thank you for considering me for the position of Vice-Chairman of the Algonquin Township Republican Central Committee.
