McHenry County Board Chairman, Joe Gottemoller is seeking applications to fill a recently created vacancy on the County Board in District 2.
The term of office to be filled will run through December 5, 2016. State Statute dictates that the vacancy on the County Board must be filled with a Republican currently residing in County Board District 2 because the vacancy was created by the resignation of a Republican from District 2.

Scuttlebutt at Joni Smith’s fundraiser for McHenry County Recorder of Deeds Monday night was that Crystal Lake City Councilman Cameron Hubbard is the favorite. Councilman Jeff Thorsen has been considering running for the County Board in District 2, where there will be no incumbents with Carolyn Schofield running for State Representative.
Anyone interested in running probably should apply for the appointment, since it will increase one’s name identification.
