Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser Asks Court to Force Algonquin Township Clerk to Repay $250 “Bonus”

Karen Lukasik

Included in Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser’s suit against Township Clerk Karen Lukasik, former Road Commissioner Bob Miller and Anna May Miller, the wife who worked for him while he was in office, is a request that Lukasik be ordered to return $250 that Miller gave her as “miscellaneous” income.

The February 20th filing seeks the return of $250 which short-time township senior bus driver Lukasik characterized to the Northwest Herald as a “bonus” which she received because she “did a good job.”

The brief says she received “assets of the Road District that were not earned by her” and asks their return.

  1. I thought the other pic you had of her originally on this post was far more appropriate!

  2. Gasser asks the court to make her pay it back, but not the 15 men?

  3. The real question is what did Gasser do to garner the kind of coverage that the Northwest Herald is producing?

    Seems very slanted at best.

  4. @Sam – What coverage are you speaking of?

    Here’s what I see playing out.

    Gasser should have gone to law school if he wanted to play prosecutor. He is costing the county thousands, soon to be hundreds of thousands, maybe down the line a million dollars in law suits.

    Gasser will claim he is fulfilling his duty as an elected official.

    As Andy continues his campaign against the former administration, it’s almost like he’s trying to create this constant drip, drip, drip of information; he is intentionally trying to muddy the water and suggesting there is criminal wrongdoing, where there explainably is none.

    No single voter really is following the totality of the lawsuits or, frankly, care – they see a circus with the portly guy in the pink shirt the ringmaster.

    This tap and dance continues.

    Prim’s office will refuse to investigate and Keneally won’t prosecute due to politics not the law being the issue.

    The ISP and other bodies will see what’s happening in little Algonquin township as trivial rumor fodder.

    Soon, Gasser loses the Local 150 lawsuit.

    Then he loses to the Miller clan because the bonuses he claims are unlawful are actually something his office does as well, albeit with and undetermined, in public process (somehow making it legal?).

    The votes see his charade for what it is: a power grab by a man who was not qualified as the highway commissioner, yet adept as a politician and one who rode on the coat tails of a national narrative that questioned establishment candidates, then won.

    Andrew Gasser’s tenure as highway commissioner is best analogized by asking what would happen if the chasing dog actually caught the mail truck.

    One term, then he’s out.

  5. Andrew, we love you.

    Keep up the GREAT work!

    Don’t let the lying idiots get you down.

  6. I’m so glad Gasser saw something-and said something, (Isn’t that what public service announcements and our illustrious govt. is always instructing us to do???)

    Andrew Gasser’s lawyer Hanlon is representing him FREE of CHARGE on this issue!

    Bob Miller’s lawyer must not feel as tho El Bobbo is going to be vindicated otherwise he may have done the same.

    But no, El Bobbo’s lawyer costs more than Hanlon’s hourly rate.

    El Bobbo isn’t even there anymore yet he’s STILL costing the taxpayers of Algonquin Township.
    Gasser, you’re on the right track and the best thing was hiring Hanlon the Hammer.
