Cary’s Jennifer Weinhammer is out walking her Algonquin 17 precinct today.
She is running against incumbent David Miller and seems pretty serious about it.
She has a handout for potential constituents:
“I hope I can win over voters today with walking,” she said.
The precinct has almost 1,200 voters, although only 207 voted two years ago.
That’s a 17.5% turnout.
She even has yard signs:
Hammers are used to help people remember her name.
“Before knocking on anyone’s door I have had requests from 13 households to have a sign representing me on their yard,” she wrote.
.County Board member John Hammerand does the same thing.
Others are undoubtedly out knocking on doors today, too.
