Daily Herald Endorses Joe Gottemoller for County Board Chairman — 10 Comments

  1. Perhaps if Walkup admitted he was a Democrat, he would have gotten the endorsement.

  2. There are some savvy real estate deals that have been made in McHenry County.

    If only the people knew about all of the seedy details of those transactions.


    Believe me, Walkup is the right guy for the job.

  3. Another screw up from that paper.

    Always with the establishment getting the same old, same old.

  4. It was a 3 paragraph endorsement article.

    Endorsement: Gottemoller as GOP candidate for first elected chairman of McHenry County Board

    February 22, 2016

    by The Daily Herald Editorial Board (can’t locate who is on the editorial board)

    “…Gottemoller has a clearer vision for what he wants to accomplish and how he’ll do it.”

    “…Walkup has fewer and less concrete ideas about addressing county issues.”


    The Daily Herald Editorial Board also typically goes with the candidate who presents the best image.

    They go through lots of candidate interviews so they don’t have time to delve into the details.

  5. Sleepy Joe!

    Daily Herald just turned off the alarm clock rung by Mike Walkup on Vallaey Hi, time for Board members to go the closet and get their blankies and go back to sleep. . .


  6. Perhaps it is because the Daily Herald wants someone who sounds like they have a direction- whether you agree with the direction- at least it is a place to start.

    Does Walkup’s allergy go away when he is elected?

    In the course of one article he said he couldn’t practice law because he was allergic to paper and then said he would close his practice.

    Which is it?

    This whole campaign season is making me weep.
