Board members draw numbers to restagger terms
WOODSTOCK – Twelve “lucky” members of the newly elected McHenry County Board will have to run again in 2014.
All 24 members of the County Board were up for election this year because of redistricting after the 2010 U.S. Census. And Monday, all 24 of them had to draw from a fishbowl held by County Clerk Katherine Schultz to re-stagger the terms so that half of them are running in any given November election.
Members drew by four-member district to ensure that the two- and four-year terms are divided equally. Those who drew full four-year terms postponed their bad luck a decade, provided they keep winning re-election – they will have to run in 2020 and again in 2022 with the next decennial redistricting.
