Nunda Township Trustee Jim Schlader Announces County Board Candidacy, Wine Tasting Fund Raiser Tonight

Nunda Township Trustee Jim Schlader has announced his candidacy for a District 3 seat on the McHenry County Board.

There are two Republican incumbents who seem to be running for re-election, even though I haven’t seen an announcement of candidacy yet.  They are Mary Donner and Nick Provenzano.  The third GOP incumbent, Barbara Wheeler is running for State Representative in the 64th District.

Incumbent Democrat Kathy Bergan Schmidt has not yet made her intentions known, but is expected to seek re-election.

Schlader, former McHenry County Board member from District 2 Lyn Orphal and McHenry Grade School and Library Board member John O’Neill are non-incumbent Republicans seeking to replace Wheeler and Schmidt.

And today, Saturday, August 27th, Schlader is having his first fund raiser.

It’s a $25 wine tasting event Corkscrew Point in McHenry.  The invitation is above.

Schlader’s announcement of candidacy is below.  A couple of sentences indicate that he intends to take on the incumbents who running for re-nomination:

“They are running on a platform that they promise of now do something different than what the have done in the past. I believe the voters of McHenry County see through this type ‘promise anything to get re-elected’ behavior.”

Jim Schlader Announcement of Candidacy for McHenry County Board

Jim Schlader lives in McHenry Illinois now, but he said he’s never forgotten the work ethic developed growing up in Chicago as the son of postal worker.

“I learned the values of family and hard work while growing up from my dad,” said Schlader “I learned how to work until the end of the task instead of the end of the day.”

Jim Schlader graduated from St. Patrick’s High School in Chicago and that helped shape his perspective on the importance of community.

However it was during his time as a member of the McHenry Area youth commission that Schlader found how important working with the youth of tomorrow is and what an impact those efforts can have on a community.

Schlader is one of six candidates for the McHenry County Board. Schlader has lived in McHenry County and served the public in multiple areas, including Nunda Township Trustee. He has been able to see first hand the importance of giving back to the community and the impact one person, working with the community can make.

“This is a leadership election, not a popularity contest,” he said and as a former Navy Petty officer, Schlader understands what it takes to cast a vision and gain consensus to get a job done! Jim knows all about hands on leadership.

Jim Schlader attended Lou Bianchi's fund raiser.

“Several of my opponents have helped contribute to the issues we are having  and are now asking the taxpayers to keep them in these positions.

“They are running on a platform that they promise of now do something different than what the have done in the past. I believe the voters of McHenry County see through this type ‘promise anything to get re-elected’ behavior.”

Schlader said his first motion as a member of the McHenry County Board would be a jobs initiative to support local businesses and enact policies that will encourage them to bring jobs back to McHenry County.

  1. Wow, maybe some of Mr. Schlader’s literate friends can help him in his campaign. They can gather round at the Reading Buddies event on “Wednesday Sept XX 20111. Just run down to “123 Main Stree, Anywhere, MA 02140” I wonder if his ideas for the county board – other than his per diem, etc are as original as this piece of advertising? Just another clown for the circus, eh?

  2. Oop! make that “street,” not “Stree.” I wouldn’t want to be confused with Mr. Schlader.

  3. I don’t know much about the candidate however I do know that if the worst thing that anyone can complain about is what is obviously a placeholder in a website says more about the person posting the comment that anyone else.

    I am so tired of campaigns turning negative, especially on silly little issues that get blown into monumental issues just to win a campaign. If you want to comment on the guy’s positions please do so…but a typo or a placeholder….really?
