Considering Republican McHenry County Board member Michael Rein ran against Woodstock Mayor Brian Sager last year, it’s not a surprise that Sager has endorsed Democratic AFSCME union leader Carlos Acosta for the County Board.
Acosta announced the endorsement on his Facebook page:
“I am honored to announce that Dr. Brian Sager, Mayor of the City of Woodstock, has endorsed my campaign for McHenry County Board District 5!”
“In today’s politically charged environment, some wonder why candidates are willing to put themselves under a microscope and enter a race.” Fortunately, there are still those who do so, not for a career, personal gain or financial benefit, but out of a sense of community service.
“Carlos Acosta, Candidate for District 5 McHenry County Board Member, is one such individual.” Carlos has served Woodstock and the larger McHenry County community for many years in the area of social services and outreach and has always done so with a focus on helping others to attain their goals and find a better quality of life.“I support candidates who are willing to work hard and work together to find solutions, no matter what the political affiliation.“Carlos will do just that.” I urge voters of District 5 to support him in the November 6th General Election.”
