It was supposed to be on the morning of the second day of the Grafton Township separation of powers trial last week.
The subpoena from McHenry County Board Chairman and Chairman of something called the McHenry County Public Aid Committee Ken Koehler.
Delivered just the night before the Tuesday trial date, the subpoena “commanded” Linda Moore to
“bring the Complainant’s (name withheld) case file including any and all individualized documents or notices generated or received with regard to the applicant, the original application, all correspondence, referrals, and written notations to the McHenry County Public Aid Committee.”
The Wednesday meeting was scheduled in Koehler’s office, but Moore told me the meeting was canceled because the client withdrew her appeal.
Besides Koehler, all the other committee members are township supervisors. They are Preston Rea, Roger Naylor, Donna Schaefer, Diane Klemm and Bob Pierce
The day after the subpoena was delivered, Township Administrator Pam Fender was questioned about posting on Huntley Neighbors apparently about the woman in question. Fender insisted she did not violate confidentiality rules.
