From the Republican Party of McHenry County:
REPUBLICANS PROMOTE CORONER’S REPLACEMENT
By unanimous decision, the McHenry County Republican Party has chosen to promote Dr. Michael Rein as their choice for McHenry County Coroner.
The recent retirement of Coroner Dr. Anne Majewski created the vacancy in the office, which will expire in December of 2020.
McHenry County Republican Party has completed interviews with applicants to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of former Coroner Anne Majewski.
A Marine Corps veteran and past elected member of the McHenry County Board, Dr. Rein’s medical degrees, training and experience make him eminently well-qualified for the Coroner’s position and the necessary cooperative efforts with the States Attorney and Sheriff’s departments.
Dr. Rein’s knowledge and understanding of the opioid, fentanyl and heroin problems will be of significant help to McHenry County.
“During his tenure on the County Board, Dr. Michael Rein showed a strong desire to control expenses while continuing delivery of quality service; his attention to budget details and a commitment to service to the community is exemplary.
“We’re very pleased that Dr. Rein has stepped forward to fill this vacancy and continue the professionalism and caring of Dr. Majewski,” according to Diane Evertsen, Chairman of the McHenry County Republican Central Committee.

State law gives the appointment power to Democratic Party Chairman Jack Franks.
State law, however, states that appointment, however, must be from the Republican Party.
Rein has named Franks in a suit related to the Illinois Integrity Fund’s attack on him during his unsuccessful campaign for re-election to the County Board.
