Grafton Township Republican Primary Offers Chance for Write-In, Zielinski Running Again

Candidates have filed for each of the positions in the Grafton Township Primary Election, yet one office could be filled by a write-in campaign.

For Supervisor, there are two running:

  • Joe Holtorf, Huntley
  • Eric Ruth, Huntley

Incumbent Road Commissioner Tom Poznanskiof Lake in the Hills has two opponents:

  • Frank Kearns, Huntley
  • Steven Stolzman, Lake in the Hills

For Assessor, Lakewood’s Al Zielinski has filed for re-election, even though the salary was more than cut in half and the position was striped of health and life insurance.

Contesting for Clerk will be

  • Kathleen Watson, Huntley
  • Dina Frigo, Huntley

Frigo served as Clerk during the early portion of Supervisor Linda Moore’s term.

Although there are four Township Trustee positions, only three people filed:

  • Thomas Welch, Lake in the Hills
  • Sean Cratty, Lake in Hills
  • Daniel Ziller Jr., Huntley

This is the chance for a newcomer to win election as a write-in candidate.

To run, one must file a statement that one is running a write-in campaign.

Grafton Township Republican Primary Offers Chance for Write-In, Zielinski Running Again — 5 Comments

  1. Zielinski has filed for re-election…even though his salary was cut in half, and don’t forget he cost the township $25k in a lawsuit, destroyed documents, spent freely until the township took his credit card, kept inconsistent office hours, failed to consistently return phone calls, told taxpayers they shouldn’t file assessment appeals…

  2. Dina Frigo resigned as clerk, now she wants the job again?

    She must be confused.

  3. I really can’t state it any better than this:
    “Zielinski has filed for re-election…even though his salary was cut in half, and don’t forget he cost the township $25k in a lawsuit, destroyed documents, spent freely until the township took his credit card, kept inconsistent office hours, failed to consistently return phone calls, told taxpayers they shouldn’t file assessment appeals…”

    PLUS defied FOIA requests, ran his office into the ground, and on and on…

  4. If so, both his grandfather and grandmother served as Grafton Township Supervisor.

    As Township Supervisor, Howard Ruth served on the McHenry County Board.
