McHenry County mourns the death of Coroner candidate Mark Justen
As you are likely aware by now, McHenry County Candidate for Coroner, Mark Justen passed away on Sunday, March 29th. Mr. Justen was well-known and respected throughout the county. Our condolences go out to his family, friends and the community at large, who will no doubt remember his contributions and feel his absence for some time to come.
There have been a number of inquiries as to how this will affect the November election for the Coroner's office. Simply put, the law dictates that in a vacancy such as this, the party (Republican party, in this case), will choose a replacement candidate from their ranks.
We will make note of the replacement when the decision is communicated to our office.
