Let The Debates Begin!
WOODSTOCK, IL — Independent candidate for McHenry County Sheriff, Jim Harrison, is ready to take on opposition candidate Bill Prim, in a series of public debates for the benefit of McHenry County voters.
“Public debates are the best opportunity for the people of McHenry County to see and hear the candidates, side-by-side, as they discuss the issues facing the next Sheriff. By comparing the qualifications and experience of the two candidates for Sheriff, voters can make an informed decision in November, and informed voters make better decisions,” Harrison said.
Harrison would like to see a series of debates throughout the County so more people can meet, hear, and evaluate the candidates. Media organizations, civic groups, community organizations, and other interested parties are encouraged to host debates in their communities.
Nearly 9,500 registered voters, from communities throughout McHenry County, signed petitions to have Harrison’s name placed on the ballot as an Independent candidate in the November 4, 2014 Sheriff’s election. Harrison will be the first Independent candidate to appear on the ballot for McHenry County Sheriff.
"The opposition agreed to debate me when I became a ‘certified candidate’ in the election, so now that that hurdle is behind us, let the debates begin,” Harrison said.
