To the Editor:

By the time you read this the I-know-fill-in-name-of-friend-or-relative-or-co-worker-here love fest will be over, and we can return to normal letters, such as Obama bashing, township bashing, overtaxed complaints, etc.

I also have a complaint/suggestion. In the years that the McHenry County clerk is running for re-election, his or her name should not appear at the top the ballot you receive to vote on. What a bunch of free advertising for the clerk running for re-election by having their name appear in the upper corner of the ballot.

Thus when Katherine Schultz was running for re-election, her name was top and prominent, which I believe violates the no electioneering within so many feet of a polling place rule.

This elimination of the clerk’s name would only be in the year that the clerk is running for re-election.
