No explanation given for incumbent Supervisor slates absence
For reasons unknown the Avon Action candidate slate boycotted the recent Avon Township Candidate Forum sponsored by the Village of Hainesville and moderated by Joan Kaltsas from the League of Women Voters Lake Forest-Lake Bluff branch. Candidates from Avon Strong as well as Avon Independent were on hand to field numerous questions from the audience.
Normally when a candidate in attendance is there without his or her opponent, they only get two minutes to make their remarks and no questions are asked. At last nights meeting, Supervisor candidate Douglas Raul Williams had plenty of questions thrown at him and got plenty of time to express his platform and candidacy.
The same went for the only candidate who showed up for Avon Township Assessor, Avon Strong candidate Wayne George Flary, currently a Deputy Assessor with Lake Villa Township. who also fielded numerous questions regarding tax bills, tax appeals, etc.
Trustees candidates and Highway Superintendent candidates from both the Avon Strong and Avon Independent groups spent the better part of the meeting answering questions.
Those who attended were:
Douglas Raul Williams – Avon Independent
Cathy deGroh – Avon Strong
Jeanne Kearby – Avon Strong
William McNeill – Avon Strong
Hal Sloan – Avon Independent
Wayne George Flary – Avon Strong
Robert (Bob) Kula – Avon Strong
James De Nomie – Avon Independent
Patricia Smart – Avon Strong
