A voter in Ellsworth brought this to my attention this morning. I don’t vote in the local Ellsworth election since I don’t live in Ellsworth.
One guy is running for the Village Board as an Independent AND Township Trustee as a Democrat. He probably thought he would have a challenger for Trustee, he doesn’t. He also didn’t fool at least one voter this morning.
Evidently Ellsworth doesn’t pretend their local elections are non-partisan like Bloomington and Normal do. The local Democrat party had Tari Renner listed on their website as running for mayor. The GOP ignored Kevin Lower. Brilliant strategy GOP! Keep pretending!
