I’m a little late on this one, but the 4th KC County Board District race is turning into a a bit of a soap opera. What else is new, right?
Word on the street is Bonnie Kunkel didn’t bow out of that race to focus on her law practice as she said, but because she has her sights set on Christina Campos’ Aurora Township Supervisor position. Ms. Campos is not very well regarded in some circles.
Two separate sources told me that Ms. Kunkel stepped down to give Aurora Attorney Brian Pollack a leg up in the county board race in return for his support in the Township Supervisor contest. There certainly did seem to be a mad rush of suddenly appointed Democratic PCs who summarily got Mr. Pollack on the ballot.
And now some of these new Democratic PCs are getting bounced because their addresses don’t add up.
I’m getting mixed reviews on Pollock, but almost anyone would be better than his opponent, former Tim Schmitt District Director Beth Goncher. She’s a real piece of work.
