Fourth spot

To the Editor:

Anti-Ken Koehler voters: Failure to cast any of your four votes for Jim Roden, Koehler’s most competitive McHenry County Board District 2 challenger, allows pro-Koehler voters to safeguard Koehler.

Do District 2 voters require County Board approval to popularly un-elect its chairman? Not when one of November’s contested District 2 seats comes down to incumbent Koehler vs. challenger Roden.

To review: Serious anti-Koehler, GOP voters will need to hold their noses and vote for Roden, a Democrat, the strongest anti-Koehler candidate. Votes for Roden must outnumber Koehler, a Republican, and James Kennedy, a Democrat. (Kennedy’s mojo-less this election, and would be a wasted vote, potentially in Koehler’s favor).

In conclusion, District 2 voters: Donna Kurtz, Carolyn Schofield, and Jim Heisler will be fine at the polls (they’ll easily win three seats through name recognition alone). To send Koehler packing, Roden must take that fourth spot. Vote for Roden.
