  1. Why didn’t the trustees and supervisor cut the highway commissioner salaries.

    Many people wanted the salary reduced including Andrew Gasser.

    Why is it that these trustees do exactly opposite of what is expected.

    More big government.

  2. Bob Anderson and his group of tax fighters on the McHenry Township Board really trimmed the loafers in McHenry Township.

    Supervisor got cut from $120,000 to $45,000.

    Township Tax ASSessor down from $112,000 to $45,000.

    Road Pig: down from $129,000 to $45,000

    Trustees: $100 a mtg to ZERO!

    And nobody gets the gold plated health care coverage for themselves and facility and college kid deadbeats.

    This was great!!!!!
