From Associate Judge Kevin Costello:
Attorney for the petitioner was Robert Hanlon. James Kelly represented the Algonquin Township Electoral Board and Michael Cortina represented the man who filed the objection to the referendum’s being on the ballot, Republican candidate for Township Supervisor Randy Funk.
As with his decision against the challenge to the McHenry Township Board’s cutting of the McHenry Township Road District ‘s tax levy by 31%, if one was not in the courtroom, one has no idea of the Judge’s reasoning.
Representing County Clerk Joe Tirio were Assistant Attorneys from Lake County John Christensen and Joy Fitzgerald. Apparently McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally recused his office.
