"Charlie voted no because they were not turned in properly"
And you believed that? Again, he was grandstanding and trying to make the highway department look incompetent or he has not taken his responsibilities as an elected trustee very serious.
You say he can learn to do the job, it doesn't look like he learned very well to be a trustee. I cited the rules per the Townships of Illinois about paying the bills. He refused to follow them, and you consider him a hero. I have no words.
