Grafton Township GOP Censures Congressman Adam Kinzinger — 14 Comments

  1. I am in complete agreement with Mr. Brettman’s well worded statement.

    Thank you for standing up for the Republicans of McHenry County, Mr. Brettman.

  2. The Chumps in Algonquin Twnp won’t do the same!

    What about Nunda and McHenry Twnsps.

    What about the sleepy County GOP ‘organization’?

  3. Whereas Trump will tell us at the CPAC if we should vote for Catalina Lauf to replace this closeted Democrat.

  4. Literally no one cares what the hillbilly leaderships of townships think about anything other than whether Cooter plows the backroads fast enough.

    But carry on, fine statesman 🤣

  5. Grafton isn’t in the 16th congressional district.

    Crickets hear from their knees and chirp from their wings.

    Try Underwood or Casten.

  6. “Try Underwood or Casten.”

    Why would they need to express disapproval of people who belong to a different political party, nob?

    It is a given since they belong to a different party.

  7. Does it matter what party if the act itself is wrong?

    Voting is the controller not outsiders lip service

  8. Hi Cal,

    Do you know who is a member of the Grafton Township Republican Central Committee?

    They do not appear to have a website I could find.

    Thanks.

    This is where one can find the Yearbook:

  10. About that yearbook: The Grafton PC appear to match with the 2020 election results, but I thought Wilke, not Evertsen, was the chair of the GOP.

    Lisa Arvanites (D) is listed as PC in Grafton 1 and 4.

    I see some other outdated info there.

    Acosta is listed as an elected PC but he did not run in 2020.

    Bottom line: there is inaccurate info in this list.

    Check the 2020 primary results to doublecheck.

    I forgot how few PC there are in Grafton.

    11 out of 31?

    4 of those 11 are county officials (Teresi and three board members).

    20 vacancies out of 31 seats?

    They should be trying to recruit more people.

    Grafton is becoming more Democratic so Brettman might want to get some Republican PC to counteract that.

    These censure gestures are fine but you want a point of contact for voters.

    Unless GTRCC would like to see a Democratic majority on the county board and a majority of McHenry County’s state legislators be Democrats…

    If I were “Student” and curious about this issue I would ask the following questions:

    Was this meeting in person? Who was in attendance? Was quorum met?

    The technical stuff.

    But you’re not going to find websites for PC.

    You’re not going to find websites for city councilmembers or aldermen.

    You’re not going to find websites for individual county board members. (Generally speaking.)

    These little smallfries are just not important enough.

    Think of it this way:

    You can find a Wikipdia entry about the CEO of a large fast food company, but you won’t be able to find a Wikpedia on a cashier.

    Building on the fast food analogy:

    PC are like the people who sell you a cheeseburger (the cashiers) — they’re important to the organization but low in hierarchy, replaceable, and not individually memorable or noteworthy.

    But you can find contact info for public officials.

    Schofield, Skala, and Thorsen who are PC in Grafton are on the county board so it should be pretty easy to get in contact with them.

    Teresi is the county’s auditor so ditto.

    You can click on board members’ names and you’ll get an email address.
