Newly-elected McHenry County Board member Jeff Thorsen seems headed to be elected the Vice Chairman of the County Board.

Thorsen, who was appointed to replace Ken Koehler when Koehler was appointed to the Metra Board, is a former long-time Crystal Lake City Councilman.

On the City Council Thorsen was known for voting against hiking the city sales tax by 75% and defending the lake’s watershed, especially when McHenry County College sought special permission to build upon it.

The office of Vice Chairman carries few duties, except to serve as Chairman when the Chairman secures himself votes or is otherwide indesposed.

Thorsen could, however, become the Republican counterpoint to Democrat Chairman Jack Franks.
