You might want to get your facts straight before you start shooting your mouth off like you know what your talking about.<quoted text>this will be interesting because quite a few people who were nothing short of bullied into signing the recall petitions for rose bonnie and jim were told that they would only lose their positions on "the board" and that it had nothing to do with losing their jobs! when they realized they had been lied to, it gave them a whole new perspective on the shady group they were dealing with. and now we hear that Mike is only running so that he can get lamore in as his "deputy" and then he's resigning? another shady move by people we are supposed to trust and believe that they have no hidden or personal agendas? REALLY????? can an entire community be that gulible?
If Mike resigns the board would have to appoint another supervisor to replace him until one could be elected. the DEPUTY SUPERVISOR DOES NOT HAVE A VOTE ON THE TOWNSHIP BOARD. Only the "elected supervisor" can vote.

If assessors are appointed pursuant to this section, the supervisor shall be the chief assessing officer and the assessors shall be subordinate to the supervisor. Upon completion of the assessment and the making of the rolls, the rolls shall be deposited with the supervisor. The supervisor shall be secretary of the board of review.
(2) The township supervisor may appoint a deputy township supervisor, who shall serve at the pleasure of the supervisor.
