Lawrence offers five reasons for trustee support
Rachael Lawrence says besides the fact that she's independent, there are five main reasons to vote for her instead of others running for Algonquin Township trustee.
“As we move forward to the general election on April 4th, it's more important than ever to focus on some significant and stark differences between the candidates,” she said.
Having recently acknowledged her openness regarding nepotism at the township level, Lawrence said she receive hostile communication from elected officials, defied discouraging phone calls and messages, and sought to clarify her qualifications on her Facebook page.
For one, Lawrence argues that she offers “the core values of fiscal responsibility, limited government, transparency and ethics,” and is the only candidate to take “a public stance against nepotism and corruption in our township government.
Her post points to her as the only one to “[regularly] attend and actively participate in Township board meetings" and to "work with current board members to obtain and study previous years' budgets and audits, and comprehend Township Code as delineated by Illinois state statute."
Finally, Lawrence says she is the only candidate to correctly file statement of candidacy forms, arguing that the erroneous filings of other candidates "cost the taxpayers thousands of dollars in challenge hearings."
“I am also the only independently funded trustee nominated in the primary who is not associated with a slate,” Lawrence said. “If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, or just want to learn more about how Township government operates, please don't hesitate to call or message me.”
The candidate can be reached at 847-220-3333.
