Four elected officials have been selected to lead the McHenry County Republican Central Committee for the next two years.
They were all from the coalition put together four years ago when Sandra Salgado won the chairmanship.
Elected Chairman to replace Salgado was Diane Evertsen, McHenry County College Trustee and former McHenry County Board member.
She stepped up from the post of Party Secretary.
The vote was 8,668 for Evertsen to 6,678 for opponent Mark Daniel.
That gave Evertsen over 60% of the total vote.
Each Precinct Committee was allowed the same number of votes as the number of Republican ballots cast in their precinct.
The Party Treasurer, McHenry County Board member Chuck Wheeler, was elected Vice Chairman over fellow County Board member Jim Kearns.
Wheeler tallied 8,787 votes to Kearns’ 5,975.
For Secretary, McHenry County College Board member Karen Tirio, wife of Recorder of Deeds and County Clerk candidate Joe Tirio, beat out Tammy Garzo 9,703 to 5,423.
McHenry Township Road Commissioner James Condon was expected to be nominated for Treasurer, but after Algonquin Township Trustee Rachael Lawrence was placed in nomination, McHenry County Board member Joe Gottemoller moved that Lawrence be elected by acclamation.
The four new GOP leaders were sworn in by McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally.
