When I saw AECOM US Federal Political Action Committee out of Arlington Heights, Virginia, on the campaign disclosure reports of Joe Gottemoller, candidate for McHenry County Board Chairman, and Tina Hill, McHenry County Recorder of Deeds candidate, I wondered why.
So, I filed a Freedom of Information request for “documents relating to AECOM or AECOM Capital.”
Yesterday, I got information showing that an AECOM firm has done hundreds of thousands of dollars of business with the McHenry County Department of Transportation.
AECOM Technical Services provided $150,000 of “miscellaneous products” for Deerpass Road bridges pursuant to a County Board resolution passed March 2, 2015. “Phase II Engineering” is also on the invoice dated April 20, 2015.
Another part of the same invoice bills $249,868.29 for something similar.
The total was $399,868,29.
The contributions from the firm’s PAC that have showed up so far total $750.

State Senator Karen McConnaughay received $1,000 contributions from AECOM Technology Corporation in 2004 and 2008 while she was Chairman of the Kane County Board.
McHenry County Board Chairman Ken Koehler got $500 the same year.
