Gary didn't know.  He thought he was sworn in.  That is the rub.  He was deliberately screwed by someone who knew full well what they were doing and did it with ill intent.  I'd like to say criminal but I'll leave at malfeasance.

At the very least that person needs to be removed from the appointed office.

I still think it was deliberate and for the sole reason of appointing the person he beat in the recall election but we shall see how it plays Monday night.  I may go and sit in the gallery.  I'm sure it will be 'enlightening'

LOL.  What time?  Let me know.  I might just join you.

Probably it would be more entertaining than anything on TV that night.

Side getting a lot of support on Facebook from the MEN article posted there. Seems as though the Clerk is the one that should know the laws and rules.  If Side isn’t given the post he won everyone that voted for him should crash the township meeting.

I don't do Farcebook but CL does.  She read some of it to me.  I guess Gary plans on suing the township if they appoint the guy whom he beat in the recall election.  Still comes down to malfeasance in office on the part of the clerk.  The telling thing is she re-swore in the trustee or whatever he is and conveniently forgot about Live.  Very telling.  Live said she asked him for his Township Hall keys which tells me their plan.

Stinko in London Township.  I'm sure the MN will be there and a lot of other interested persons.

Someone's head is about to roll.

What a pizzer.  Not sure what is going on but remember last year when someone put barbed wire and cut steel posts in one of Live's fields.  Things are not good up there and seems to be getting worse.

The meeting is at 7:30 pm at the township hall.

Small town politics at it's best and worse but rules are rules and being dishonest is still a crime.

The State Police have an corruption investigation unit for elected officials. It would start there but someone with the particulars would have to call and make the complaint.
Let's see what happens at the meeting first. They "may" do the right thing.

Congrats to Gary for being appointed 3-1 to the position you were elected to.

With that said that was the most unprofessional meeting I have ever watched.

So only 1 person had the courage to show that he/she were an ahole and vote against the person that was duly elected to serve..

Do they often call for a vote and then go to reading documents, having more discussion, yell at the citizens, have the citizens yell at them?

Is that standard operating procedure?

We would have went but CL has a Planning Commish meeting last night that conflicted.  I take i the lone no vote was the clerk that should be removed from office anyway. Malfeasance is still malfeasance even if Gary retained his seat.

She needs to go.

Stuff like that should never, never fly.
