Can anyone explain why Les left Willow Springs as village clerk a few years back? I understand he was told to resign?

LES WAS NOT TOLD TO RESIGN FROM WILLOW SPRINGS. PETERSON IS WELL CONNECTED TO A VERY POWERFUL LAW FIRM. HE IS FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS WITH ONE OF THE PARTNERS OF THIS LAW FIRM. THE LAW FIRM REPRESENTS MANY POLITICIANS AND MUNICIPALITIES IN THE STATE, SUBURBS AND THEY REPRESENT GOV. PAT QUINN. THIS LAW FIRM ALSO REPRESENTS WILLOW SPRINGS AND SUMMIT. PETERSON WAS GIVEN THE JOB IN WILLOW SPRINGS AS VILLAGE MANAGER/CLERK. PETERSON WAS TOLD THAT THE CHIEF'S JOB IN SUMMIT WOULD BE HIS AND WILLOW SPRINGS WAS TEMPORARY. HE HAD A SALARY OF ABOUT $85,000 YRLY IN WILLOW SPRINGS. HE WAS FORCED TO RETIRE FROM MORAINE VALLEY COM. COLLEGE. EVERY PLACE LES HAS WORKED HE HAS MANY LEGAL PROBLEMS, WHEN YOU HAVE POLITICAL CLOUT, YOU HAVE IMPUNITY AND THE TAX PAYERS ARE LEFT PAYING THE BILL. IT'S NOT WHAT YOU KNOW, IT'S WHO YOU BLOW. I LIVE IN WILLOW SPRINGS AND I'M GLAD HE'S OUT OF HERE, WE HAVE ENOUGH PROBLEMS.
