On Tuesday, Chief Deputy Auditor Shannon Teresi was voted Board to serve out the remaining months of retired County Auditor Pam Palmer’s term by the McHenry County Board.
She was nominate by Democratic Party Board Chairman after GOP members made it clear that
- they would not support anyone else and
- that they were not about to vote to put a referendum on the ballot to abolish the elected office.
Wednesay night, Teresi won unanimous approval of the McHenry County Central Committee to be its candidate for Auditor this fall.
The nomination came in a separate meeting after Republican Precinct Committeemen elected leaders for the next two years.
Democrats have not named anyone to run for the office.
