James Kelly Withdraws as Algonquin Township Road District Attorney

James Kelly

Attorney James Kelly has withdraw as the legal representative for the Algonquin Township Road District.

Considering all the ink about Robert Hanlon’s representation of Highway Commissioner Andrew Gasser, some might ask, “Who knew?”

Unbeknownst to me, the Township Supervisor appoints the attorney for the Road District.

Not on matters concerning the conflict with Local 150 of the International Union of Operating Engineers, but on more ordinary matters.

In any event, here’s the resignation letter:

No reason for Kelly’s discontinuation of representation is contained in the letter.

  1. They can appoint with Road Commissioners approval.

    (c) Unless otherwise provided and if approved by the highway commissioner, the township board of trustees may employ and fix the compensation of a separate township attorney who shall represent the highway commissioner. Such compensation shall be paid out of the township road fund.

    Considering there is a conflict, this statute clearly applies from the Highway Code, which governs the Road Commissioner.

    (605 ILCS 5/6-201.19) (from Ch. 121, par. 6-201.19)

    Sec. 6-201.19. Have authority to hire legal counsel to perform legal functions for road districts where performance of such functions by the public official who would otherwise represent the highway commissioner would present a direct or potential conflict of interest.

  2. It’s starting to look very much like the federal government in Illinois.

    Everybody resigning before the blade comes down.

  3. Too bad Lukasik won’t do the right thing and resign, Lutzow and Victor can go, too!

  4. Like rats from a sinking ship …

    Suddenly things are getting very interesting.

  5. Very interesting.

    I’m sure it couldn’t be because one week ago he realized he couldn’t get paid for his services.

    Reason being that the trustee’s refused to agree with the Highway Commissioner’s legal budget.

    No, that would be irrational.

  6. Thank you Mr. Gasser.

    Thank you for bearing this cross so many others refused to carry.

    Thank you for not buvkling under the fake news of the northwest herald.

    We cannot imagine the pressure and attacks you are under but we know you are good.

    This entire house of cards is beginning to fall.

  7. Does Mallory miller still have a job …..or maybe Canada has something

  8. Big Thanks to Andy Gasser…without him these sandbaggers would still be drawing huge pay with unlimited credit card usage….and I think the pink truck is a huge notice for cancer awareness

  9. Did everyone miss that he never represented Gasser?

    This was a letter to clarify roles.

    And now it’s clear, he doesn’t represent him, the other shoe is going to drop.

  10. Thought he resigned, but no.

    The Alg Twp taxpayers can’t catch a break.

  11. Cindy,
    You nitwit. Of course he resigned. He’s part of the NWO and slowly will return to enslave us all.

    You heard it here first.
