The following email was sent by McHenry County Republican Party Chairman Diane Evertsen:
It appears we have committeemen who have taken it upon themselves to author an email relative to the wrangling in Algonquin Township.
I say “It appears” because I was NOT sent a copy of the letter, even though the author twice mentions she has sent the email to me.
As of today, I have not been included and have no idea who or how many recipients there have been.
The Executive Committee of the McHenry County Republican Party was not consulted, nor are we involved in that email communication.
Our committeemen are able, and encouraged, to meet and consult with committeemen from other precincts and counties to help them be successful.
The ability to network and learn new and better techniques to educate their voters on issues and policies increases their value to our communities and our Party.
Unfortunately, the information contained in the emailed letter cannot reasonably be construed as educational since it promotes activities which are simply not lawful.
Further, neither Ms. Hill nor Mr. Jung have authority to ask “in the name of the McHenry County Republican Party” for anyone’s resignation.
Neither does the Party have any authority to replace a duly elected Township Road Commissioner.
Thank you to the committeemen who took the time to contact me about this and I, personally, would like to apologize to you on behalf of others, for any concern or confusion this may have caused.
