We Democrats believe that government should be honest, transparent, and available to all citizens. But in McHenry County, the Republican Party has monopolized control over local government for 150 years, resulting in a cynical network of power that only benefits the well-connected. It's no wonder voters have become skeptical of the value of local government.
Just a few years ago, the Democratic Party of McHenry County began to chip away at one-party rule for the first time in decades. Well-qualified Democratic candidates won election to municipal and County Board positions. A few years later, state-wide and national Democratic candidates began to win majorities in McHenry County.
