Andrew Gasser came out of his blog hiatus and posted this article entitled: In the interest of transparency… Gasser has somehow managed to put at least some of his bills online and takes a few jabs at county board members who voted against transparency in the past.
Gasser who is claiming he keeps 100 percent of his promises states the website will be live by December 13th which would be just in time for the next Algonquin Township Board Meeting.
Gasser also made special mention of former Nunda Township Highway Commissioner and McHenry County Board District 3 Member Donald Kopsell. He pointed to a Northwest Herald article where Kopsell is quoted:
“Andrew Gasser is the biggest mistake ever made in the state of Illinois,” Kopsell told the Northwest Herald. “He’s going to bankrupt [Algonquin Township] and put them out of business. He’s the perfect example of why people should get rid of townships.”
Gasser then calls for Donald Kopsell to resign claiming he is not fit to hold office. His contention is that no one could possibly take Kopsell seriously when there are individuals who are in prison. Gasser states:
Donald Kopsell should never be taken seriously if he thinks Andrew Gasser is worse for Illinois than Michael Madigan. Don Kopsell should resign from the McHenry County Board immediately – he is mentally unfit for duty.
When I talked to Gasser he stated told me, “Michael Madigan has been in office for 45 years… longer than I have been alive. Kopsell is not fit for office and should resign.”
Gasser then pointed out how many elected and former politicians are protecting unethical behavior. He openly asked how people could condone such behavior. Gasser then stated he would be much more vocal on social media and ensuring local politicians take a stand against unethical behavior. He specifically cited the Townships of Illinois (TOI) and how non-existent their ethics are.
Gasser then stated he never lost an election but ensured other did lose.
“It is time for me to become much more active in the political process. I have been muzzled but I don’t need to be anymore. I will ask all of those who are running for office if they will term limit themselves and if they will vote to reduce taxes.”
