First out of the box were supporters of long-time incumbent Bob Miller.
The attack is on the signature issue of opponent, McHenry County Board member Andrew Gasser.
Putting an opponent on the defensive is always a good idea.
Here’s the text of the call:
Good afternoon. This is Bryan.
I’m calling you about the February 28th primary elections. Andrew Gasser, a candidate for Road Commissioner, has some explaining to do. He talks “Talking about” lowering taxes yet just last week, as a county board member, he voted against putting a property tax freeze question on the ballot.
State Rep David McSweeney Said he was “Extremely Disappointed” with the vote” and that it was a setback for property tax relief.
State Rep Allen Skillicorn called the vote “embarrassing”.
Maybe this bid for Highway Commissioner is just another government job for Andy. However, my neighbor and friend Bob Miller is doing a great job, he has cut the tax levy 10% this year and actually does what his opponent only talks about. I hope you join me in voting for Bob Miller for Highway commissioner.
Press 1 option. Removal option.

Gasser was the one who got signatures to put similar referendums on the ballot in Cary and Fox River Grove. Both passed by about 90%.
