Thomas Wilbeck Candidacy Puts District 2 GOP in Primary Play

McHenry County Board District 2 map.

Out of the woodwork stepped Thomas Wilbeck of Lakewood.

His unexpected entry into the Republican primary means the three incumbents and publicly-announced newcomer will have to put on real campaigns.

Incumbent Scott Breeden is not running for re-election, concluding for at least the time being a career of public service that included the presidency of the Village of Lakewood, presidency of the Crystal Lake Park Board and membership on the McHenry County Board.

Crystal Lake City Councilwoman Carolyn Schofield stepped up to run and, until today, she and the three incumbents,

  • Jim Heisler
  • Ken Koehler
  • Donna Kurtz

were assumed to have an unobstructed path to the fall election.

Wilbeck’s last minute entry means there will be a reason to vote in the Republican primary other than the Republican Presidential Primary.
