Attorney David Stieper reminds comment readers of the strategy he suggests to those truly interested in protecting the taxpayer could take to return the bulk of the money sitting idle in the Valley Hi Nursing Home account:
The Board should sue Valley Hi seeking imposition of constructive trust on these funds and request the court appoint a receiver for return of these funds back to the taxpayer where they belong.
Mike [Walkup], this is the strategy I recommended some weeks ago on this blog.
It might be a case if first impression and you can make case law.
Stieper ran unsuccessfully for the McHenry County Board two years ago in District 1.

Of course, County Board members would have to do more about helping taxpayers than just putting an assertion that they will fight for taxpayers on their campaign brochures.
