It’s less than three weeks after the Primary Election.
I went to the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce’s Business Expo searching things political and governmental.
In its usual space right to the right after the entrance at South High School was State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi’s space.
The next booth featuring politics had photos of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
The attraction was promoting a “local community of real estate investors who meet weekly.” The web site is www.epicrer.com. The next meeting is Tuesday, April 5th at the Illinois State Bank’s downstairs room.
Down the line was the McHenry County Genealogical Society. Not a government organization, but of interest.
The next meeting of the Genealogical Society is 7 PM Thursday, April 14th, at the Pointe Outreach Center east of Sam’s Club. The topic will be “Courthouse Discoveries.”
The Crystal Lake Public Library had a line of people wanting to play their version of Wheel of Fortune.
McHenry County College was the next governmental entity to make its presence known.
The next tax district promoting it services was the Crystal Lake Park District.
As I walked on, I found the Pro-Life booth.
A supplier of services for the McHenry County 708 Mental Health Board was next. At 5 PM Monday, Rosecrance is asking the McHenry County 708 Mental Health Board for over $183,000.
On to another tax-supported entity, the McHenry County Clerk’s Office.
The City of Crystal had three spaces at the Crystal Lake Expo.
In the middle was the Crystal Lake Police Department’s presentation.
Under the “all other” category was the third display for the City of Crystal Lake.
Across from the Crystal Lake booths was one for the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department.
There was lots of space for more exhibitors around the corner.
When I reached the food court, I found the closest thing to a Republican display.
It was newly-elected Grafton Township Republican Precinct Committeeman, Fred Falbo, at Pablo’s booth.
Two years ago Nunda, Algonquin and Grafton Township Republican organizations got together to rent a CL Expo booth.
But not this year, even though many precincts still don’t have people willing to go door-to-door for this fall’s elections.
The final booth of a local government was that of the McHenry County Recorder of Deeds.
