Monday marks the opening of early voting. I love voting early but I am a geek in that way. If you early vote at the County complex, ask for Phyllis. She is a sweetheart.
If you are looking for endorsements here are my suggestions:
County Board 6
- Jim Zay
- Robert Larson
- Kevin Wiley
The key vote in the district 6 vote is Kevin Wiley. I’m relatively certain Larson and Zay will get elected but if Wiley makes the team it means Enger doesn’t which would be outstanding.
Forest Preserve District 6
- Al Murphy
Al Murphy is a great guy that will do a great job for the forest preserve. He owns the Ace Hardware over on Rt59 in West Chicago. His competition is Shannon Burns who is only running because she doesn’t want the Forest Preserve maintenance facility in her back yard. Not surprisingly, she is a good friend of Dennis Clark who is also a NIMBY motivated politician. It goes to show you that NIMBY’s of a feather flock together. It’s no wonder why Clark is in so tight with Winfield United. If you need a recommendation for Forest preserve district 5, Mary Lou Wehrli is your best choice.
I also voted for Jeanne Ives who I know personally and is a great person for the job.
The others are either running uncontested or are pretty self explanatory.
