Klinkhamer Running for Kane County Board Chair

by , posted on Friday, November 4th, 2011 at 2:23 pm

Hate to say I told you so, but Sue Klinkhamer is circulating petitions for the Kane County Board Chair Dem primary. She will have a primary opponent in former Carpentersville Mayor Bill Sarto. I’d give Klinkhamer, a former mayor of St Charles, the edge on that one. Between her regional transportation work, her work in DC lobbying for the City of Chicago, and her stint as Bill Foster’s in-district director, she’s got a lot of contacts and a lot of support throughout the county and beyond.

Either way, nice to see Dem interest in stopping either Chris Lauzen or Kevn Burns continuing the Republican stranglehold on Kane County government – with Elgin and Aurora in the mix, Kane is far from a solidly red county.

Klinkhamer tells me she plans to “test the system” and run an unconventional race…can’t wait to see how that plays out.

    I’m happy to hear that Sue Klinkhamer is running against Bill Sarto for the Democratic position against the Republicans for Kane County Chairman.

    Bill Sarto got utterly creamed in his attempt for re-election as Village President of Carpentersville. He came in last in a three way race. The reasons were many for poor his very poor showing in the polls.

    The Democratic Party would be wise to steer clear of Bill Sarto and strongly support Sue Klinghamer.
