The McHenry County Electoral Officers Board will meet Tuesday morning and afternoon to settle disputes in three precincts about who should be allowed on the ballot.
In Dunham Township, one of the largest in Republican votes, incumbent Melissa Denker’s petition has been challenged by challenger William Parker.
She is being represented by attorney Mark Gummerson and Parker is being represented by attorney Robert Hanlon.
In McHenry Township, Erik Sivertsen, running for election in McHenry 29, is challenging the petition of John Doles. Sivertsen says that Doles does not live in the precinct.
Finally, in Fox River Grove’s Algonquin 45 precinct, Bonnie Duresa has filed a challenge to 18-year old Jenna Wing’s petition. The other candidate is Richard Duresa. Election law attorney Laura Jacksack is representing Duresa. Robert Hanlon is defending Wing’s candidacy.
Hanlon tendered a certified copy of Wing’s voter registration to Duresa before Jackzack arrived.
Sivertesn’s case against Doles is scheduled for 10 AM.
The rest are on Tuesday afternoon:
- 2 PM – Parker v. Denker
- 3 PM – Denker v. Parker
- 4 PM – Duresa v. Wing
All hearings will be held in the room next to the cafeteria in the County Administration Building.
Denker claims she’s not in the bag for the outgoing party leadership, and yet she rolls into this hearing represented by Mark Gummerson?
I’m sure it’s just coincidence that she picked him (maybe he’s the best attorney for the job, right Melissa?) and that it has nothing to do with the fact that he’s a loyal foot soldier for the old guard.
Its Robert Hanlon not Richard Hanlon.
Although I believe he is Richard to Gummerson
