Republicans Gather at Nikos Red Mill Inn

In the “better late than never” category is this story about the Republican Party Meet and Greet three weeks ago at Nikos Red Mill Inn in Woodstock.

Normally, I don’t take posed pictures, but the employees of Kathy Keefe’s McHenry County Circuit Clerk’s Office wanted a group photo, so I obliged.

I like the one below better, but Keefe wasn’t in the frame:

There were lots of candidates in attendance, not all of whom I captured.

14th District congressional candidate Jim Oberweis was wearing a custom-designed mask:

I found a table full of election officials and candidates.

From left to right are County Board member Jeff Thorsen, judicial candidate Dave Gervais, County Board candidate John Reinert, County Board member John Jung and congressional candidate Jim Oberweis.

Candidates displayed the literature near the pizza.

I took a look through the newspaper, which looked a thick as recent copies of the Northwest Herald and found this image of the #METOO billboard on Route 31 north of Route 14:

McHenry County Clerk Joe Tirio came from work saying he was getting off early.

Republican Party candidate for County Board Chairman Mike Buehler was in attendance, but all I got was head shots for future articles.

After most of the pizza was gone and I had talked to lots of folks, a young man, Justin Furst, asked if he could have his picture taken with me.

Readers know that my photo r-a-r-e-l-y appears on McHenry County Blog, but below you can see the exception.

  1. I guess this is an improvement as far as people wearing masks.

    The resistance to wearing them while inside and in close proximity to other people is still dumb.

    That’s why Republicans will lose in a blue wave/red bloodbath.

  2. the pandemic is still kind of a big deal. whether people wear masks or don’t wear masks is still kind of a big deal. so yes, absolutely, 100%, that’s all I have on this post. the pictures speak for themselves and to the stupidity of many of these photographed people.

  3. Oh, stay in your home and hide, then.

    Healthy people can live life, scared or compromised people stay home.

    Simple as that.

  4. A group of certified nitwits wearing the Satanic ritualistic mask. Get ready for your vaccination that you are bowing down for.

    Oh on? You are the biggest nitwit for encouraging this assanine compliance that has NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY FAKE VIRUS!

  5. outwiththeold – I don’t care if people go out.

    I care if they go out and don’t wear a mask.

    Why is it so hard to wear a mask while you’re inside?

    Don’t get it.

    That attitude guarantees deaths.

    And for what? ?

    To rebel against the elites and scientists?

    Very cool.

  6. PinocchiOH,

    I’ll make a deal with you.

    I’ll wear a mask for as long as you shut your mouth and also stop typing.

    Sound like a deal?

    You’re literally killing people with your online behavior.

    Don’t believe me?

    I have facts and science to back it up.

    I’ll release the data later.

    You can save lives by ceasing your Internet debates.

  7. I know for a FACT that Oh is a Russian agent.

    And further, he engages in the exact same activities as Jeffery Tobin.

    Oh is also a member in good standing of the the #MeTobin “movement”.

    This info can be verified by Little Eddie.

  8. The majority have masks on. Happy bunch here! Sure beats the angry mob of the Left!
    That’s a nice pic of you Cal. Is that a patriot millennial you’re with?
    Jeff Schwartz, handsome guy. I notice that name is on his hat as well.

  9. Gervais disappoints once again.

    Was John Jung there as a RINO spy for his fake GOP friends on the Bd.

  10. Did Pam ‘The Scam” Althoff go?

    Gues it was RINO’s John ‘Open Borders’ Jung’s turn.
