Join me in a political tour of the Huntley Expo.
The first booth paid for by tax dollars or campaign funds was that of the McHenry County Recorder of Deeds.
The next booth meeting my criteria was that of McHenry County State’s Attorney candidate Patrick Kenneally.
Down the way a bit was a booth for State Senator Karen McConnaughay.
Although McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi was standing next to Patrick Kenneally campaigning at his booth, the office had a spot next to Huntley Community Radio’s near the exit door.
The next taxpayer-financed booth I found was that of the Huntley Police Department.
Judge James Cowlin and his wife were in a space he had rented at the Expo.
A booth for McHenry County College was across the aisle.
Back next to Cowlin’s booth was one for Recorder of Deeds candidate Joe Tirio.
Neither of Tirio’s opponents–Tina Hill and Joni Smith–had a presence at the event.
Next to Tirio’s booth I found one for the Huntley Library District.
Around the corner I found the space for the McHenry County Right to Life organization.
As I moved around, I found the Huntley Park District.
On the way in, State’s Attorney candidate Dan Regna greeted me with a cold hand. He was passing out little cards.
Apparently he had not paid for a booth.
He was still outside when I left campaigning with those coming and going.
