Why is the Livingston County Republican party attempting with all there might to thwart the addition of Detective Tony Childress
from becoming a Independent canidate for sheriff on this Novembers ballot? No democratic opposition is running. It seems to me they doth protest too much.

Seems to me those who you think "doth protest too much" are only asking for ALL the candidates to follow the same laws. That makes it an even playing field and is fair to everyone.

Mgt51964. It is about following the statutes and not some conspiracy theory that the Livingston County Republican party or any other party is trying to thwart anything. It is simply a matter of principle. If a potential candidate whether Democrat, Republican, or Independent wants to be a candidate they must follow all the requirements established by the election board to do so. If the statute is not adhered to then there would be no checks and balances. Without those checks and balances the system fails. To blame one party over another for trying to ensure the integrity of the election process seems to be placing blame for doing what is right. Isn't that what our values are based on? Doing what is right.

If Mr Childress wanted to be sheriff, he should of spent the effort and money to run in the primary. "Johnny come lately" appears to want to take the easy way to fame. Or, just maybe the Livingston County Board didn't like the outcome of the primary and are simply wanting to plant a puppet...what do ya think?

Illinois is one of 2-3 states in the US where access to ballots in local elections is made as difficult at possible. Whose interests are served by this? you guessed it: INCUMBENTS and GOOD OLD BOYS who like to keep running things. I've met Tony Childress and followed his story closely. He is clearly the more intelligent and professional of the two candidates. I will be voting for him. God knows, Pontiac and Livingston County need a change toward professionalism, fairness, and basic intelligence.

in reply to 'Nancy' ; Mr Childress is the more intelligent and professional of the two candidates? Do your homework - last night's debate proved only one thing & that is that 'Mr Childress' has nothing going for him than an overblown ego & trashy stepchildren/stepgrandchildren who show their ignorance/upbringing by just opening their mouths.
