Rogers runs 'cleanup' campaign for Dundee top highway spot; appearing Feb. 9
"Time to put out campaign signs and start cleaning up Dundee Township,” Michael Rogers, a 12-year Carpentersville resident and GOP candidate for Dundee Township’s highway commissioner position, recently stated via Facebook.
“Let me know if you want a sign placed at your home or business," he said.
Rogers, who is competing with Dundee dweller Scott Sinnett for the post, wants to “clean up Dundee from the streets to the office.”
Rogers reminded constituents that he plans to participate in an upcoming candidate forum scheduled for 7 p.m. on Feb. 9 at the Dundee Township office, located at 611 E. Main St., Suite 101, in East Dundee.
The event will be hosted by the League of Women Voters of the Elgin Area's Dundee Township Committee.
In addition to Sinnett, incumbent Larry Braasch will appear on the ticket, making the race a three-way contest for the position of highway commissioner. All three candidates have been invited to participate, according to the Daily Herald online.
“Nepotism and cronyism have run rampant and it's time for a new highway commissioner to clean things up," Rogers, who considers himself a reform candidate, told the Elgin Courier-News in December 2016, referring to the fact that Braasch has hired relatives in the past.
The Feb. 9 forum targets only the Dundee Township primary election, slated for Feb. 28. Citizens are advised that future forums will be announced for other races and likely scheduled during the month of March in preparation for the consolidated general election on April 4.
