PRIM FILES PETITION SHEETS WITH MORE THAN DOUBLE REQUIRED SIGNATURES
Republican candidate for Sheriff Bill Prim Monday filed his election petition documents with the McHenry County Clerk. Although needing only 517 valid signatures for a spot on the party ballot, Prim filed more than 150 sheets containing more than 1,300 signatures.
“I want to thank the dozens of volunteers who spent many hours of their own time gathering signatures for my candidacy, enough so that we turned in roughly 2 ½ times the number required,” Prim said.
“My volunteers told me they encountered an enthusiastic spirit of reform throughout the entire county. The people want reform and they’re tired of the same old creaky political organization just going through the motions when it comes to public office. They want someone with a new outlook and new energy, and that’s what I intend to deliver.
