  1. Funk is a great guy who is truly dedicated to the community.

    He spends countless hours every week on charitable work with the Crystal Lake Lions.

    He is no-nonsense and will stop the gouging of taxpayers.

  2. What does that mean Sandberg is pretty much running the show at the Hwy Dpt?

  3. Randy Funk is a great choice!

    Hopefully we get some better choices other than the office secretary for highway commissioner.

  4. The Highway dept has been lead by the clueless one who spends more time spending his $94k paycheck in Mississippi than Illinois.

    She is unprepared and ignorant of public works functions, and she’s afraid to make even simple decisions without a phone call down south.

    We should thank the employees for doing what needs to be done with little to no direction from the office.

  5. sNob, she’s doing what she needs to do and that’s answer to her boss.

    It’s not a matter of fear-it’s common sense.

    I’m sure she has learned quite a lot running the office and being in contact with her boss on any and all issues that come up.

  6. Lani Murphy -Just the next politico in line cutting their teeth at the trough of township politics.
