  1. The Road Commissioner Goad is a hybrid: part poisonous, sedentary toad, part bird brained grouse (always complaining about his “low salary”) and part gibbon, swinging on trees and flinging feces at the residents who gawk at their township novelty.

    But he’s rarely seen.

  2. Mr. Goad is a great highway chief, Everybody knows it!

    He’s head of TOWNSHIP HIGHWAY COMMISSIONERS OF ILLINOIS and foes a beautiful job in a thankless job.

    We’re so lucky to have him in McHenry County and unlucky to have Andrew Gasser.

  3. In private practise, Mr. Goad would make over $200k.

    It’s a real sacrifice working for the public as a township highway commissioner!

    Townships do so much and get no credit.

    Go after school districts as the tax hogs, not Townships.

    Bob Anderson is nuts.

    He cries about township pennies but neglects millions of dollars of dollars for his school dist. in Wonder Lake.



  4. If Mr. Goad could make $200K in the private sector he would.

    See ya. nobody is that dedicated to give up $113K.

    who are you crappin.

  5. @Save Township

    You know Mr. Goad’s wife is a teacher right?

    Curious where Mr. Goad would make $200k in the private practice?

  6. Give Goad a call at the township pigsty and leave a message.

    You won’t find him there.


  7. Has anybody ever goaded Goad into actually working?

    I don’t consider doing association work for an anti-taxpayer group lobbying for bigger pensions real work.

    How many miles of Road are in that township and are both lanes counted for the total mileage, a nice little Road Commissioner trick on the dumb taxpayers.

  8. When I was an elected official and the time came to set saleries for the elected officials and my fellow board members would want to base the pay on the individual currently holding the position, I would raise a stink.

    There is no litmus test to be an elected official, and the pay should not be based on one individuals ability to be elected continually.

    What would a comparable job pay in the private sector, then start subtracting down to what your gov’t is actually doing.
