April 18th will be an interesting night.
That the date both the Republican and Democratic Parties will hold conventions to select who whill lead them for the next two years.
Long-time Democratic Party Chairman Mike Bissett is not running for re-election as Precinct Committeeman, so he is ineligible to remain as County Chairman. In his Grafton Township Precinct 12, his wife, the McHenry County Board’s only Democrat Paula Yensen, is taking over the reins.
Sandra Salgado, the Republicans Chairman is also not running for re-election. No one is running in her McHenry Township Precinct 32.
In the Republican Party, McHenry County College Board Vice Chairman and former County Board member is actively seeking the Chairmanship.
My guess is that a Bernie Sanders supporter will capture the ring in the Democratic Party convention.
