Campaign Disclosure Reports are not due to the State Board of Elections until midnight April 15th–Friday night.
But, having just finished my quarterly torture, I started looking for reports from other local committees.
Jack Franks, now running for only one office–McHenry County Board Chairman–has 23 reports of contributions of $1,000 or more.
Clearly, when he files, that is worth a separate article.
Democratic State Rep. candidate John Bartman has no campaign committee filed yet.
His opponent, Republican Steve Reick, reports $77.95 available, having raised $4,447.98 during the last three months and spent $5,426.77. (Might be worth another article to look at the details.)
Let’s look at Democrats besides Franks now, countywide offices first.
Jim Harrison is running as the Democrats’ candidate for State’s Attorney.
Two years ago, he ran as an Independent candidate for McHenry County Sheriff after Bill Prim narrowly defeated Andy Zinke in the Republican Party Primary Election.
Harrison ran as an Independent after dropping out of the Republican Primary contest.
I typed his last name in the State Board’s search engine and got what you see below:
Next I typed in “Gray.”
Lynn Gray is running for McHenry County Recorder of Deeds.
The Democrats are running no one for Auditor or Coroner.
Looking for Republican running countywide, I typed in “Walkup.”
He’s the Republican candidate for McHenry County Board facing off against Franks.
Walkup’s committee had $12.40 in the bank, according to the first quarterly report.
The report for the three months ending June 30th has not yet been filed.
Republican McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally also has not filed his second quarterly report.
He has three entries indicating three contributions of at least $1,000.
Recorder of Deeds candidate Joe Tirio showing $222.03 in the bank at the end of June.
He raised $1,850.
He spent $1,666.34.
McHenry County Auditor Pam Palmer reported having $1,640.66 in the bank at the end of June.
A search of campaign reports for Republican Coroner Anne Majewski yields the same result as that for Democrats Jim Harrison and Lynn Gray–nothing filed.
