Former McHenry County Board member Nick Chirikos was employed by Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Bob Miller during his last year in office.
Chirikos beat Republican Bob Bless in 2012.
Republican Andrew Gasser beat him four years later.
Chirikos was hired after Miller lost the township GOP primary on Aapril 16, 2017.
He was terminated the day Gasser took office, May 15, 2017.
During that month he was paid $3,910, which includes $500 in miscellaneous income within twenty days of getting the job.
Some have called this miscellaneous pay a “bonus/”
Chirikos had four sick days in the month he was on the payroll.
The Democrat supported Anna May Miller in the GOP Primary Election she lost in March or 2016 to Tom Wilbeck and Yvonne Barnes.
He was also involved in Bob Miller’s re-election effort in the February, 2017, Republican Primary Election in which Andrew Gasser was narrowly victorious.
Chirikos received $500 about two months after the early February primary election last year.
That was just before Bob Miller left office.
Chirikos was one of four employees whose employment Gasser terminated upon taking his oath of office.
