Algonquin Township Attorney billing for calling/speaking with “prospective” Moderator before one was even nominated for 2017 Annual Township meeting

McHenry Co. (ECWd) –Reviewing legal bills sent to the Township we identified that the Algonquin Township attorney billed the Township for calling a prospective moderator, Karen Lukasik, April 10th, 2017, one day before the Annual Meeting of the Township Electors.“Apr-10-17    Call prospective moderator K. Luksik  .50″

We contend there was more than just a call as the billing was for a half hour of time.  That amount of time would indicate more than just a call and more than likely an actual conversation.

The billing reflects matters related to the 2017 Annual Township meeting which is a meeting of the Electors.  During that annual township meeting it is the Electors that are in charge.  Part of the process for conducting the Annual meeting is for the electors to nominate and vote for the selection of a Moderator.   Based on the billing and the fact that Lukasik was in fact nominated and selected as Moderator, according to the minutes, points to this selection being organized in advance and at the cost of the taxpayers.

With so much focus on legal bills, we must ask, under what authority is this attorney billing the Township for talking with an elector in advance of the meeting?  An elector that at the time of the billing had not even been nominated.

We find it very odd that a Township Attorney is speaking with an elector and even billing for those conversations in advance of any actual election to the position of moderator.

One could argue that such billing was inappropriate.

  1. More inflammatory BS speculation full of innuendo.

    A fine example of cal’s stellar work.

    It seems a loser’s work in never done.

  2. HonestAbe1, Tommy has issues, the only one who can guide him is the Tick, Toc, mew, mew, man Angel.

  3. Yes he certainly does have “issues”, watcher.

    Like his tick tock buddy he never grew up psychologically or intellectually.

    His one redeeming quality is his never failing quest to make a buffoon of himself
    by seizing every possible opportunity to do so which I find to be very entertaining – MAGA !

  4. Half hour for a phone call.

    You should FOIA phone bills and when you find out the call lasted 45 seconds, you should sue the attorney for fraud.

  5. Fire Jim Kelly, do nothing Algonquin Township Attorney.

    His manipulative advice caused Trustees not to object to Bob Miller’s premature request for sick payout with NO real documentation except a non verifiable letter from Schober.
