  1. The picture of Mr. Rickert is over 10 years old. Not sure if he has the mustache now.

    Assuming Mr. Rickert wins in November as he’ll be favored to do, he will become the 5th county board chairman of the Kane County Board to be elected by popular vote.

    He’ll also be the 2nd consecutive county board chairman to have not served on the county board prior to becoming its chairman. But unlike Chris Lauzen, Rickert has been the county treasurer for the past 21 years, so he’s no stranger to county government.

    And of all of the popularly elected county board chairmen in Kane County, he’ll be the first one from the “north-end” of the county having grown up in Carpentersville and living his adult life and raising his family in Elgin.

  2. Lets give Mr. Rickert a present.

    I met him at Dundee township last week, and he is obviously to busy.. but anyone care to work with me on a state-of-the art communication infrastructure for the Kane GOP?

    I do all the work, and for now I bear all costs – but I need voters to approve it and promote it to the GOP.
