The woman who wants to run for McHenry County Judge as an Independent, Sally Wiggins, was in hometown of Johnsburg on Memorial Day parading and soliciting signatures.
She was kind enough to send some photos, which I am pleased to share with you. (Take note other candidates seeking similar coverage.)
Of course, veterans were in the parade. It was for them and the ones they left behind.
But, so were other politicians. Above you can see McHenry Township officials. There’s Supervisor Donna Schaefer and Trustees Kathy Kuchta and Marsha Nelson. McHenry County Board member John Hammerand and his wife Cheryl, a Wonder Lake Fire Protection District Trustee, are in the next car.
The parade route went across the Fox River Bridge.
Under the bridge on a pier two bag pipers played “Amazing Grace.”
But back to the source of these photos.
Notice how Wiggins makes sure people know that her maiden name is “Oeffling?”
If she gets enough signatures and they muster an inevitable petition challenge by Republicans, she will face off against Associate Judge Gordon Graham of Crystal Lake. No Democrat has filed for the office.
