  2. Just voting for someone OTHER THAN MILLER ought to save the taxpayers money with those obscene Miller salaries that Bob Miller sets!

    What a racket…

    Vote the other guy – and Drain The Swamp!!!

  3. Self describing yourself as a “Good Guy doing a great job”?

    Who does that?

    Bob Miller only reduced tax levy by 10% this year?

    Why Now? -when he could have done it before?

    because Andrew Gasser was running against him.

    Andrew Gasser gives concrete reasons to vote for him along with enlightening info.

    Vote Andrew Gasser!

    Miller needs to retire, he’s run this gig long enough and got rich off the Township.

    Miller Time is over!

  4. Bob’s claim that he kept the imposition of property taxes flat while homeowners LOST over 33 percent of their real estate value is an indication that he does not realize he is responsible to those taxpayers.

    The responsible thing for Bob to have done would have been to REDUCE the property tax burden.

    Instead he kept increasing salaries!

    Time to clean the Algonquin Township house!!

    Remember folks, that while Bob is working for Townships of Illinois he is sucking up your tax dollars doing so.

  5. Gasser says all of this while living on a fat government pension with no experience in road building and maintenance.

  6. Be sure to look at your tax bill.

    What percent is the road district?

    The property tax issue is due to public pensions mostly due to school districts.

    With the exception of District 200 and Susan Handlesman, not talked about very often.

    i don’t believe anyone that promises to lower taxes as it is yet to happen to me.

    How do we judge who is paid too much without comparing them to neighboring townships?

  7. Gasser when was the last Time, You Paid Real Estate Taxes in McHenry County, or any other County in this United States of America?

    Please show us your paid tax bill or bills.

    The Mrs, you are correct on this one, Gasser is looking for a supplement to his income!

    I was excited too, when a new face wanted to run against Bob Miller, always good to see a change, but Gasser’s ethics and trustworthiness is in question.

    When voting for Road Commissioner, remember this . . .

  8. Andrew’s are all attack pieces as was the Chicago style last min gotcha video.

    Andrew’s promises to reduce twh levy by 25% in four years with no service cut while new roads will be added under the NDR program.

    Ya right, sounds like BO’s hope nonsense.

  9. Didn’t Bob Miller freeze the tax levy the past couple of years and reduce the levy by 10% most recently?

    Also, why haven’t we seen the the chart showing that Algonquin Township has the third lowest tax rate in McHenry County?

  10. Lots of negative attacks from Gasser.

    The candidate that goes negative is almost always the candidate that is trailing.

  11. The work gloves Gasser is wearing in the photo op with the Case don’t appear to have seen much use.

  12. That picture is almost as ridiculous as Michael Dukakis riding around in a tank with his helmet on.

  13. That is a Case loader that is available for snow removal at a local private business parking lot.

    Andrew faked it, much like saying he can run a road crew by just reading out of a manual.

  14. OMW, so you perfer we vote for someone with no pratical experience that will make it more dangerous for us to drive?
