The McHenry Township Republican Central Committee elections resulted in both factions getting a seat at the table.
Erik Sivertsen was elected Chairman. My guess is that he was found acceptable to the Jourdan faction because of his opposition to the weighted voting. His is Committeeman in McHenry 29.
Sivertsen operates a gun store in Johnsburg.
Sivertsen is on the McHenry Grade School Board and ran for McHenry County Board. When the State’s Attorney tried to kick him off the ballot because he was running for the Elementary School Board at the same time, Sivertsen represented himself successfully in court.
Vice Chairman is Johnsburg’s Mike Kaminski. He lives in McHenry’s 7th precinct.
Treasurer is former County Board member Sue Draffkorn from Wonder Lake. A former County Board member, she ran as an Independent for Township Trustee last year.
Rounding out the team is John Macito from McHenry Township Precinct 3.
