Island Lake Electoral Board a Puppet Show
Local municipalities should not be judge and jury over their own opponents. The judges in Island Lake were the very people who have publicly supported Herrmann for Mayor by being petitioners for her Mayoral candidacy. Does that seem fair? Every election cycle, objections are made in one or a few towns around the area and then the supporters or opponents sit in judgement. The town or city has to absorb the costs to carry on the hearings as well. In Island Lake, estimates are high on the cost of three hearings and lots of legal discussion in between hearings.When Shanon Fox read a prepared statement opposing the candidates, it was proof of a biased and intentional injustice and of the puppet show going on in Island Lake.
