First reports were that the race to win the top spot on the McHenry County Board was a three-way race.
Incumbent Tina Hill was being challenged by Joe Gottemoller and John Hammerand.
Now, there are five seeking the top post.
The other two are Nick Provenzano and Jim Heisler.
Provenzano ran unsuccessfully for County Clerk against Mary McClellan.
Board Vice Chairman Heisler filled in for Hill as Hill underwent treatment for a drinking problem.
If all twenty-four Republicans attend the organization meeting on December 1st, it will take thirteen votes to elect a Chairman.
