Letters to the Editor

Forfeit nomination

To the Editor:

Republican Steve Reick, just before last month’s primary election, sent out a letter concerning his nonendorsement from Republican Party Chairman Mike Tryon.

It was nothing short of deception. He lied when he said that Tryon had mistakenly endorsed Reick’s opponent, Preston Rea, who also happens to be Tryon’s business partner, for Alden Township Committeeman.

Reick deliberately misled the voters in an attempt to get elected and still failed to win. It is clear he is just another lying politician who will say or do anything for a vote. He reminds me of former state Rep. Michael Brown, who was accused of publicizing fraudulent endorsements from nonexistent organizations.

Reick should be forced to forfeit his nomination for blatantly lying to the voters. He is symbolic of what is wrong with politics hucksters deceiving voters for their own personal gain.

There must be accountability and consequences. The McHenry County Republican Party should disavow themselves of Reick and pledge not to support someone who lies to the voters and cheats for his own benefit.
