  1. The 16-8 Republican majority on McHenry County Board makes McHenry County the only collar County with a Republican majority of its county board members.

    Kane and DuPage counties both saw a flip to Democrat control, though DuPage still has an elected at-large Republican board chairman.

    In Kane, where Democrats now hold a 13-11 majority, Jeff Ward wrote that 3 of the 13 are, what can be called, “DINO” – “Democrat In Name Only”?

    We’ll see.

  2. Jeff go run for CL Mayor now, i know you will save us on taxes!

  3. My congratulations to Joe Tirio on a job well done.

    This election was one of unprecedented difficulty, yet the voting and the counting seem to have come off with nary a hiccup.

    Joe is a consummate professional and of the highest moral caliber.

  4. Nary a hiccup? This is why you are a complete moron! And a liar to boot!

  5. Cindy, civilized people don’t talk the way you do.

    Is your mother still alive?

    Why don’t you call her and tell her how you act?

    “Guess what I did today, Mommy. I hid from people and screamed insults at them!”

    “Oh, Cindy, I’m so proud of you!”

    If you have children, is this how you raised them?

    “Listen, child, when you grow up I want you to hide your identity online and scream vile insults at people.”

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again now.

    Your comments on the site are grotesque, but to spew your hatred when people were expressing grief for Chuck Wheeler was unforgiveable.

    And for that I cursed you then and I curse you again now:

    May everyone in the world, and especially those you care for, treat you for the rest of your life exactly as you have treated people on this blog.

    And at the end of your life, may God judge you with the same mercy that you have shown people during your life.

  6. I love you Steve and will see you soon. πŸ‘ΉπŸ‘Ί

  7. I curse you Steve and will meet you soon. πŸ‘ΊπŸ‘Ή

  8. For Steven who is not only doubling down on his filth spewing while he curses like his Father Satan but actually heaping more coals on his own head. In his complete ignorance and abject arrogance, I submit just a few of the reasons that he is moving swiftly to the head of the line for the Lake of Fire:
    Psalm 59:12; Proverbs 18:2; Proverbs 26:12; James 1:19; Proverbs 18:12; Ecclesiastes 5:3; I Peter 5:5; Proverbs 12:17; Psalm 140:5; Daniel 5:20; 2 Corrinthians 12:20; Obadiah 1:3; Proverbs 6:16-19; Isaiah 2:11; Luke 14:11; Psalm 138:6; Job 15:3; Jeremiah 50: 31-32; Ephesians 5:6; 2 Petere 2:10-18; James 4:16; Proverbs 3:34; 2 Peter 2:10; Proverbs 18:13; Proverbs 13:10; Isaiah 13:11
    As for myself: (which is why Satan has proclaimed his love for Steve on this very blog) Psalm 109: 1-31 and Romans 13:4

  9. I love you too Cindy and will see you soon. πŸ‘ΉπŸ‘Ί

  10. Cindy, you are clearly β€˜touched!’

    Seek help before your demons consume you.

  11. Cindy, For someone that quotes the bible so often, you should actually try living by some of it’s principles.

    Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. I

    f we are doomed to the fires of hell, we will be in line behind you.

    The main tenants of the teachings of Jesus are to love your neighbor as you would love him, something you do not live by.

    Beware, you are the false prophet.

  12. πŸ’ƒ Happy dance for days with Mr. Buehler winning.

    Jacko πŸ‘– πŸ”₯ will soon be gone.

    In fact Jacko, get the heck out now & let Buehler take over.

    Get out of Mchenry County politics & stay out.

    🎡 We never wanna see your face no more 🎡 no more, NO MORE !

  13. And They’re coming to take her away Ha Ha

    They’re coming to take her away ho ho he he ha ha
    to the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time,
    and she’ll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats
    and they’re coming to take her away ha ha

  14. Terminator, Steve is of healthy mind and he communicates well and is persuasive, respectful.

    Cindy is not willing to hear others out and the name calling is just ridiculous.

  15. You can see that the morons and idiots are making this blog about me. It was NEVER about me! This is how stupid these nitwits are when they keep up their antics. Everything I post is truth. The ones that can’t handle truth like to attack and misdirect. I have never been one that will not “hear someone else out”. That is a TOTAL lie. Coming from Nob it makes sense, because he is a champion liar. The only objective here is to get the truth out to my neighbors. Love your neighbor as yourself means to WARN them when they are in danger or going astray against their own physical and mental health. You fools that hate your neighbors are NOT helping anyone. You have so much bitterness in your hearts that you only want to whine, complain, and attack me. Along with the handful of psychopaths and mentally deranged, there are also some completely selfish people around here that want only to glorify themselves. I think we all know what that means and where the pitiful Steven stands. Anyone with that much venom is dangerous. You can see how he lost his mind over nothing and started attacking like a viper. Welcome to the long line for the Lake of Fire. He is certainly not knowledgeable of what a good Samaritan would be.

  16. Cindy, didn’t Jesus say to judge not lest ye be judged.

    Shut up you hypocrite.

  17. the Peracle? Aren’t you a speshul moron! Do you understand the meaning of the word discernment? No, you do not. You are just like your Father, Satan when you twist scripture like that. OR you are just a plain everyday idiot that repeats like a parrot to force your dumb theories on others. No critical thinking. Ordering someone to shut up is very mature of you, also. You must have the debating skills of a kindergartener. (BTW It’s called projection when you do that judgmental thing with the word hypocrite.)

  18. I’m playing “Hit the Road, Jack” at maximum volume right now…

  19. Mike Buehler is such an important win for McHenry County but this shows that the Republican party in McHenry County needs new Leadership from the top.

    The current attitude of well, if they support Joe Tirio ( who I support) well then they are a good candidate cannot continue.

    The Republican party has become QAnon, Conspiracy theorist Fringe anti maskers and anti-vaxxers.

    They have turned off Republicans and the moderate voters.

    We need a new party in Illinois and McHenry County like yesterday.
