It’s pretty obvious that Local 150 of the Operating Engineers wants to be recognized by the Algonquin Township Road District, but a February 14, 2018, letter to Andrew Gasser Attorney Robert Hanlon adds detail.
The letter was in reply to a settlement offer from Hanlon.
This seems to be the paragraph relevant to the Road District’s loss in court on Tuesday:
A figure in excess of “one million dollars–not including attorneys’ fees” is mentioned.

- Andrew Rosencrans, Bob Miller son-in-law
- Derek Lee, Bob Miller son-in-law
- Nick Chirikos, an entry level employee and former Democratic Party County Board member hired after Bob Miller’s primary election loss
