A press release from Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Bob Miller:
Algonquin Highway Commissioner Heads Illinois Township Officials
Algonquin Township Highway Commissioner Bob Miller will head theTownship Officials of Illinois for the next year.
It’s the second time the organization which represents 1,429 of the state’s 1,431 townships has picked the Township’s highway head as its president.
“Twenty-five years ago my father, Del Miller was elected to this same position,” Miller said.
“I share his ardent commitment to Township government and will do my best to provide strong and effective leadership.”
TOI, which represents over 10,000 Illinois township supervisers, road commissioners and trustees, was organized in 1907 to lobby on behalf of member townships.
Today, TOI’s function also includes the education of township officials and the promotion of township government.
“As a unified group we have pooled our intellectual resources to preserve and protect Illinois’ small local governments,” said Miller.
