After months of reading news articles and following posts about Grafton Township on Huntley Neighbors, my husband and I decided to attend a Grafton Township meeting on July 12, 2012. We wanted to see for ourselves how our tax dollars are put to work. I can only express our disappointment in our Township Supervisor, Linda Moore.
We certainly learned how many mistakes she makes with our money. Taking money out of the budget earmarked for senior busing and spending it on newsletters. Not paying bills on time and incurring more expenses on late fees. Paying bills but not paying the correct amounts, causing vendors to become upset and not want to do business with our township. She even argued paying the trustee their stipend for meetings as far back as April of this year. It didn’t seem to us that see enjoys her job. She certainly doesn’t seem to take pride in doing her job well.
What really upset my husband and I was the answer or non answer she gave to another citizen that attended the meeting. She directed a question to Mrs. Moore during open comment and asked, “Why have the trustees’ not been paid?” Her response, “I do not answer questions of the general public.”
We believe that Linda Moore is doing this township a disservice. To be a supervisor you need to have leadership qualities and to be a good leader you need people to follow you.
