Tina Hill and John Jung, both Republican Precinct Committeemen from Dorr Township (Woodstock area) have sent the following email to other precinct committeemen:
Algonquin Township Highway Department
Dear Fellow Committee Members,
Attached please find a letter I am sending to Chairwoman Evertsen regarding all the events that have unfolded in Algonquin Township Highway Department since the last election. If you agree with me that the McHenry County Republican Party should ask the Algonquin Township Highway Commissioner to resign for the good of the Algonquin Township Taxpayers, please let me know and I will add your name to the letter.
I am sending this to all Committeemen that I have emails. I do not have them all. Please forward to any other committeeman that you have. It would be much appreciated. I have also included Chairwoman Evertsen in on this email so she is in the loop of this request.
Hill’s and Jung’s letter:
Dear Chairwoman Evertsen,
We have been watching as events unfold in the Algonquin Township Highway Department and waiting for improvements. The situation has become untenable and unfair to the taxpayers of Algonquin Township. Frankly, they deserve much better from their Highway Commissioner and more from their Republican Party.
We could list all the infractions, real, designed, or fabricated that have unfolded in Algonquin Township, but they are plain to see for anyone following and attending their meetings, the newspaper, or online media. The most egregious we find right now, in addition to all we witnessed, is that Highway Commissioner Andrew Gasser is simply absent from his duties.
He has declared an emergency of salt shortage during our most dangerous winter of ice storms in a decade and threatened to close roads even though salt is available from his neighboring townships. During this emergency, he was in Madison Mississippi to spend Valentine’s Day with his “bestest (sic) half. (His words)
The Republican Party has a long history of a leadership that does not leave anyone behind whether on the battlefield or the home front. We the following undersigned committeemen ask that in the name of the McHenry County Republican Party, that Mr. Andrew Gasser resign his position so that the Party can name a competent replacement.
We look forward to your response.
Tina Hill, Committeewoman Dorr 5
John Jung, Committeeman Dorr 11
