Business Cards Enter the Political Arena

I’ve noticed more candidates with cards this year than previously.

The first one appeared at the Bill Prim for Sheriff fund raiser at the Bull Valley Country Club.

The back of Bill Prim’s card tells what he will change as McHenry County Sheriff.  It’s basically his platform.  It includes establishment of an independent internal affairs office, cooperation with the State’s Attorney’s Office, elimination of non-essential civilian administrators, “a leaner, more efficient Sheriff’s Office” and more.

Prim, of course, is not on the ballot until next March’s Republican primary election.

On the ballot on April 9th is McHenry County College Board candidate Tom Wilbeck.

The front of Tom Wilbeck’s card promises “NO expansion without voter approval.”

The back of Tom Wilbeck’s card evidences opposition to the proposed health club, full utilization of existing classrooms and opposition of tax hikes or bone issues without voter approval.

The most localized race for which there is a card is the one for Mayor of McHenry. Incumbent Sue Low has the card you see below:

  1. Illinois State Crime Commission names Bill Prim Representative for McHenry County: joins Emergency Statewide Summit Conference.

    NOTHING ABOUT THIS IN THE NORTHWEST HERALD.

    News made county papers around the state, but not ours.

    Had to find out from relatives in other counties.

    All kinds of “puff pieces” in the NWH about Andy Zinke but NOT THIS.

  2. D, you are so right. NWH makes a new article every time Z takes a crap. It has been hilarious lately.

    One article about the number of DUIs going down, they quote him, eventhough in the quote he says he has no idea why the number is down.

    BEST DAMN NEWSPAPER EVA!
