Yesterday Republicans in Algonquin’s Founders Day Parade were featured.
Today we look at the Democrats.
Behind the banner was a young man carrying a “Thank You Bernie” sign, plus one opposed to the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement being pushed by President Barack Obama and endorsed by Hillary Clinton pre-Sanders.
In the next picture, we can see that County Board candidate Paula Yensen makes a second appearance in the parade. She made her first as a Lake in the Hills Trustee.
The person in a donkey suit can be seen clearing in the next photo.
Paula Yensen made a second appearance in the parade.
The first was as a Lake in the Hills Trustee.
Note that unlike District 1 candidates Potter and Barber, Yensen following the rules.
A pickup truck bearing a stylized donkey came next.
Blue tee shirts with the name “Flavin” came after the truck.
Ray Flavin is the Democrats’ second appointed candidate for McHenry County State’s Attorney.
His opponent, Patrick Kenneally, was with the Republicans, but he had many fewer supporters last Saturday.
At the end of the Democrats’ entry were two candidates:
- Ray Flavin
- Nancy Zettler
Looking at the back of the walking Democrats I saw a youth with an anti-Trump sign: “Love Trumps Hate.”
It took me back to the 1960’s.
After the Democratic Party entry came the Jesse White Tumblers.
A commenter took me to task after the McHenry parade for putting them in the political category.
Guess that person doesn’t realize the spreading name identification in a favorable manner is a major part of politics.
This is one of six units that spread out across the Chicago metropolitan area which give favorable publicity to Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White.

I am weak on face recognition of Democratic Party candidates. If either Potter or Barber or any other candidate appeared in the parade, please let me know where they are in which photo.
