Commissioner Dan Troy responded to a question asked by a Lobbyist member in the audience regarding holding a meeting where campaign signage is displayed. Please note Troy’s sarcasm regarding recall petitions for Commissioner Cirino. The first commissioner to speak is President John Hamercheck.
As a reminder, here is the email from Commissioner Troy to Mark Rantala, Director of the Port Authority.
Email from Dan Troy to Port Authority regarding Rider’s Inn Luncheon 9-9-18
In our opinion, this is an unseemly display of power by an elected official. The, not so veiled, threat to Rantala reminding who controls the purse strings is very unbecoming of a commissioner. This email has caused a cascade of events that, in our opinion, has put Lake County and, by extension, the Lake County taxpayers in a precarious, legal position. After the election, we will be contacting the various State agencies, including the Ethics Commission, to file complaints.
