It is no secret that the Northwest Herald has it in for Algonquin Township Highway Commissioner Andrew Gasser. The local rag has put Gasser on the cover no less than eight times with drama filled headlines, click bait bylines, and pictures of Gasser that are less than flattering. Gasser has complained about this before to Komenda.
“I talked to Ed when he took the pictures of us in flood operations. While most people had pictures of themselves throwing sandbags there was a picture of me operating a forklift looking like I was lost. I was like what the hell, Ed?” said Gasser.
Now on what Gasser calls the private Gasser Facebook hate group page “Citizens of Algonquin Township” a post has appeared congratulating Komenda for utilizing pictures that frame Gasser negatively.
Komenda and Hannah Prokop belong to the group which was allegedly formed by Algonquin Township Clerk Karen Lukasik and Jennifer McCrackken after Gasser defeated 24-year incumbent Bob Miller. Trustees Melissa Victor and David Chapman also belong to the group and often post negative comments about Supervisor Chuck Lutzow and Gasser.
“I do not have access to that page,” said Gasser. “They are all Fake News. They feed the Northworst Herald and there is not a shred of credibility left in that paper. Compare pictures of any conservative or politician to that of Jack Franks. I wonder if the Northworst Herald sends in a makeup guy for Jack before they take the pics.”
Gasser has been one of the only Republicans to stand up to Franks and the guile Political Class of McHenry County. He often posts images of what he believes to be the best representation of the Northwest Herald.
