Allen Skillicorn absence from the public not gone unnoticed and makes seat flipping foregone conclusion
State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R, Sleepy Hollow) now facing questions directly from Democrat challenger Suzanne Ness (D, Crystal Lake) over his absence. In social media, her campaign has launched a “Where’s Allen?” campaign.
In a thread, she states the following observations:
“Here’s what we know:
– Allen no longer owns a home in the 66th District
– Allen registered his business to the state of Arizona
– Allen closed his District Office + disconnected his Phone in the midst of a pandemic
– Allen turned down the League of Women Voters’ Debate”
And Ness asks the following questions:
“So here are my questions for Allen:
– Where are you?
– Why aren’t you fulfilling your commitment to our community?
Mr. Skillicorn seemingly has enough time to tweet about national politics, but cannot show up for the people of District 66. Enough is enough.”
Skillicorn’s campaign website is sorely out of date, and his Taxpayers for Skillicorn political committee has seen no activity since mid July as previously reported.
We looked at his Twitter page, and saw Skillicorn is tweeting about national politics, but doing some local politics, too, plus this change to his profile picture:
Looks like a throwback to his Libertarian days, using the Young Americans Liberty (YAL) symbols.
McHenry County Blog was unaware Skillicorn had closed his district office let alone disconnected the phone.
And Skillicorn told POLITICO Shia Kapos he was really in the race recently and sent a press release demanding one of Ness’ fellow county board member to resign after an arrest?
While no arrest in Skillicorn’s case, his own resignation may be in order, given he’s all but abandoned his post.
