Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser Loses Suit to Void Local 150 Contract Signed by Predecessor Bob Miller after His GOP Primary Election Loss

Below is  the August 21, 2018, court order from Lake County Judge Daniel Jasica on Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser’s suit to void the union contract that outgoing Road Commissioner Bob Miller signed after losing the Republican Primary Election.

Ed Mahar, attorney for the Operating Engineers, Local 150, observes,

“Attached is the order from yesterday’s court appearance, at which all of the Algonquin Township Road District’s claims were dismissed with prejudice.

“The amount of tax dollars that Andrew Gasser has tied up in this unsuccessful fight is astounding, and it has resulted in nothing but a massive bill footed by the taxpayers.”

  1. Gasser was later found screaming about the Algonquin Highway Dept. parking lot, “FAKE NEWS! IT’S ALL FAKE NEWS!!!!”


  2. Political Payback is a bitch, huh, Gasbag.

    Everyone but you saw this coming.

  3. Wasted $500k about right?

    The Dog’s will be by for damage control, have patience.

  4. Need a Handwriting Expert here.

    Please take a look at this childlike scrawl of cursive and print. Get back to us with your evaluation.

    Should be a laugh riot.

  5. Political stunts come with a cost. gasser got the first day on the job picture handing out bu,,sh,,it termination letters, and here we are after he began his crazy antics that continue today.

    At least cal’s crazy antics were more affordable back when he was stopping the clock, eating free hotdogs in the Capitol, segregating prisoners, and sending state funds to private schools.

    Fortunately, he lost all of his later bids, after his Dad couldn’t help him.

  6. Really all this time and money, all these posts, where is everone opinions keyboard Commandos and whack jobs.

    I’ve seen ect!I sure hope it’s over move forward deal with it make the guys at the township want to move forward and still do an excellent job with good pay.

    I appreciate them.

  7. My father died in 1989.

    I served four terms in the 1990’s, losing to Rosemary Kurtz in 2000.

  8. Now what will the settlement cost us?


    When will this insanity end?

  9. Worth the fight!

    Now it is time to get rid of all Townships!

    Anyone want to see a question on the ballot to get rid of all Townships?!

  10. And remember with the cuts that Gasser made to the bloated levy Miller had for how many years using the township his personal bank account the taxpayers will still be ahead!

  11. again on–I doubt it since the legal fees are already above his budget because the board refused to raise it..

    Even if it, is how much more would we have saved by him not chasing his white whale.

    He spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and this fight is still not over if he appeals.

    What will the settlement cost?

    There will still be legal fees incurred to get through that, plus any settlement that needs to be paid.

    All this because he had an axe to grind.

    When he defeated Miller he should have taken his victory and and not played political payback.

    His white whale is costing us way to much.
