Out in my precinct this past week I saw the remnants of people having campaigned for and against the advisory referendum on a $31.2 million referendum to build a new library in Crystal Lake.
The Vote Yes folks had a long door hanger.
The Vote No people had an 8 1/2 by 11 inch yellow sheet of paper, printed on one side and attached to door handles with a rubber band.
I believe those opposed were passing out the same message that McHenry County Blog previously published.
In short, there was real money behind those favoring the referendum; minimum dollars behind the opposition.
There were lots of “Vote Yes” signs in the Crystal Lake portion of my subdivision–Country Club Additions.
Sunday a couple were driving around the neighborhood, perhaps jotting down the addresses of those with “Vote Yes” signs so their homeowners could be identified and encouraged to go to the polls.
Below are larger images of what both sides were passing out.
