What's this I've been hearing from different sources that Jack Fields, the current Antioch Township Assessor, and possibly others are allegedly going to be indicted for some sort of property tax scheme? Anyone out there know any more about this? That's all the township needs is to elect someone that might be about to be in a lot of legal trouble.

I've heard the same thing, but i didn't hear about a possible indictment. I do know that the State's Attorney is all over this mess. Details?

Without some proof this sounds like good old fashioned election time rumor mongering except anyone can say anything on the Internet these days.

For now it's a rumor. But it is a pretty well substantiated rumor. Real Estate taxes are Public Record. Check them out.

well after reading some of his flyers I would not vote for him .it is full of lies and misleading quotes. If what he is saying is the truth then show us the PROOF.which i do not believe he has.I hear that he cooked his home value to get a lower tax assement by more than half.that he is paying less than 2500.00 on a 3000 sq.foot house in antioch.well i know if that is true then man i must be paying way more than my share 1700 sq.foot house 6800.00year.sorry back on the subject.he made statements about the if he gets elected he is going to work and make sure the residents are involed with the lcfp on property in the township.
well maybe he should have known that they do that now.Every time they buy a parcel they have open public meetings on them and get input from the locals.maybe he should attend a few and that goes for the township meetings I dont believe i have ever seen him at a township meeting. how are you going to inprove something if you dont know what is happening at the present.
Idont really care for steve in someways but he has done alot for the township like grants for the parks .he is worked a deal out with the foxwater way to do alot of the work on the park for no cost to the resident .the foxwater way is putting dredged material on the park but the idnr is watching very close to what and its contents.to make sure no contamited material is dumped.so you are right we dont need someone like him running the township.SO go out and vote for steve.

Funny that all the news outlets find it hard to check the records when Fields makes a statement. The question is two fold. First, did Fields cook the books on his homes value to get his tax assement lowered? Maybe a real estate broker could get that done. Second,and maybe the most important question is dose the Lake County States Attorney have a case open on Mr. Fields? The media could get that answered with a phone call to the States Attorney's office. I would bet that there reports have the number on speed-dial. There is still time to make the call AND REPORT THE TRUTH.

Duh yourself, did you see the mud Jack is slinging? All lies! And Steve can walk with his head high knowing he does a good job for our community. And he does not speak poorly about his opponent although he certainly could. I vote for Steve.

Yes I guess you can include this in that bio (one) helped run ARS into the ground,(while it was being robbed by another board member ) Boy thats a great keeper of the funds (two) Sold ARS their insurance policy while on their board ( hummm wonder what that sounds like )(three) has nothing to brag about that has been acomplished in the township except for the township offices and for a place to hide all day.

Here it is, straight from the horse's mouth taken from Jack Fields' Candidate Profile: "In the Assessors Office, with Heather Kufalk-Marotta, I assisted in the development of criteria for comparative market analysis in establishing the true fair cash value on real estate". I've heard the Kufalks and the Fields go way back, like close family friends, so to have two Kufalks and Jack Fields together again in the assessors' office would be a real train wreck. The books would definitely need to be audited!! UGH!!
